San Francisco 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh has been in the headlines over the past week thanks to an alleged rift between himself and general manager Trent Baalke. However, Harbaugh has denied that there is any friction between the two men and it appears that he won’t be going anywhere before his contract expires.
According to Sports Illustrated, there is “zero opportunity or chance” that Harbaugh leaves the team before the end of the 2015 season.
Harbaugh tried to clear up his stance with the team and made it very clear that everyone is going as planned with his current situation.
If that existed, it existed in somebody else’s mind, not mine. I am too fond of my team, the players, the coaches. I really feel like we have one of the best, if not the best organizations in football,” Harbaugh said.
Whether or not Harbaugh will be the long-term coach of the 49ers remains to be seen, but for now it looks like the team’s fans can rest easy and enjoy the next two seasons with his khakis gracing the sideline.
