Duane Kuiper is the San Francisco Giants' television play-by-play broadcaster but that doesn't mean he can't chime in on the 49ers' hiring of Jim Tomsula.
'It's a wait-and-see, right?" Kuiper said on KNBR 680-AM Thursday morning. "It's hard to wait-and-see, though. There's no doubt about it."
The 49ers still have to hire an offensive coordinator, defensive coordinator and other assistant coaches.
Additionally, Michael Crabtree, Mike Iupati, Frank Gore, Perrish Cox and Chris Culliver are all set to become unrestricted free agents.

Although it's unlikely, will the 49ers release Colin Kaepernick before his base salary for 2015 becomes fully guaranteed?
What will the team do if/when Patrick Willis, NaVorro Bowman and Chris Borland are all fully healthy?
There are still a lot of unanswered questions.
"We're going through the same thing with the Giants' offseason," Kuiper continued. "It's hard. Especially if you're involved with two organizations that have had a lot of success. Wait-and-see is not what fans like, but sometimes that's the only thing you can do."
