How many days until next NFL season starts? *checks calendar* Oh man, we have a loooong ways to go. Well, better beat this Jim Harbaugh story into the ground.
By now you’ve probably heard a bunch of crazy rumors about a rift between Harbaugh and the San Francisco 49ers. What does Harbaugh think of the speculation? Well, he thinks it’s crazy.
Here’s what Harbaugh had to say to Sports Illustrated:
“I see all these reports about how I want to be the highest-paid coach in football. They presume I covet some kind of extension. I have never said to anybody that I want to be the highest-paid coach in football. I have never said that to anybody — my wife, my brother, my dad. I make plenty of money.
“The other one is that I want more power. I have never said that, nor do I want any more power than I have. I coach the team. I’ve told my owner I don’t want any more power. I want to coach the team. And I’ve never told anybody else otherwise.”
