As the highly-publicized search for the next head coach of the Texas Longhorns gets off the ground running, the rumored names for Mack Browns successor are getting bigger and bigger. One of those names that has come to the surface lately have been that of current San Francisco 49ers head coach, and former Stanford Cardinal head man, Jim Harbaugh.
This shouldn’t come as a surprise really, considering Harbaugh is basically the architect that began turning Stanford into the powerhouse that it has become today under David Shaw.
To this point, though, Harbaugh has not really addressed the idea of possibly becoming the next leader in Austin. He was briefly asked about it the other day, as well as his rumored rift with San Francisco management, to which he just gave a reply of, “Absolutely.” in regards to staying in the Bay Area.
He hasn’t really given any sort of lengthy response. Until now.
Harbaugh was asked once again about a possible shift to the Longhorns, and he gave a more colorful response, even fitting in a Judge Judy reference:
“Rumors? Do you have any evidence?” Harbaugh said. “Any evidence, or what are we talkin’? Hearsay, here? Hearsay. Well in Judge Judy’s court, hearsay is not admissible evidence. So I think we can all agree that an unnamed source is hearsay, would we not? … You have my quote on that question.”
