Haslam confirms that Browns had talks with 49ers about Jim Harbaugh


There were reports that the Cleveland Browns talked to the San Francisco 49ers about obtaining head coach Jim Harbaugh. There has been some discrepancies around the report, but Browns owner Jim Haslam confirmed the reports that there was a discussion about obtaining Harbaugh.

“There was an opportunity there, and it didn’t materialize,” Haslam told Jarrett Bell of USA Today.
