The San Francisco 49ers reportedly have a power struggle between head coach Jim Harbaugh and general manager Trent Baalke. 49ers CEO Jed York says that Harbaugh hasn’t asked for more power but still reports persist. Baalke addressed the rumors himself now and said there was no issue between the two.
“I think that’s all overblown,” Baalke said, via the San Francisco Chronicle. “It’s no different than it’s been since Day 1. I think every relationship changes to a certain degree. It’s very professional. He’s got a job to do. I’ve got a job to do. We try to do that together and we do it well together. It’s not just the two of us.
“There’s so many people that are involved in decisions and everything else that goes on here. So many people that have been involved in the success of this organization over time. So I think people like to focus on that, but in my opinion it’s way overblown.”
Baalke added: “You’re not going to always agree. And I don’t know that that’s healthy, always agreeing and always being on the exact same page. I do believe there’s times when that isn’t going to happen. And that’s OK.”
