The recent reports about the San Francisco 49ers having trade discussions with the Cleveland Browns about Jim Harbaugh, no matter how serious they may have been, has showed the public just how toxic things are becoming between Harbaugh and the Niners.

While the two sides are married for another year, already there are rumors swirling about where Harbaugh will coach next and lots of teams may be gearing up for a run at an unconventional free agent in 2015. According to Jason Cole, the Miami Dolphins appear to be at the front of the line when it comes to teams looking to make a run at hiring Harbaugh in 2015.

Of course, all of this is assuming that the Niners and Harbaugh divorce after next season and don’t agree to a contract extension. Still, Miami needs a change in culture and you don’t get any more of a violent shift than going from Joe Philbin to Jim Harbaugh.
