After the 49ers came back to take the lead aganst the Lions and the Lions failed in their last-ditch effort to pull out the game, San Fran coach Jim Harbaugh was fired up.
A little too fired up for the liking of Lions coach Jim Schwartz.
Harbaugh was celebrating the win as he crossed the field and exchanged a perfunctory handshake with Schwartz, before Harbaugh continued to celebrate. Schwartz initially ignored Harbaugh, but then Schwartz ran to catch up with Harbaugh, bumping into Harbaugh while generally barking at Harbaugh without challenging him face to face.
The pair were then separated, but Schwartz kept going after Harbaugh. More and more people got involved to keep Schwartz for bashing his face repeatedly into the former NFL quarterback’s fists. (Though Schwartz seems like a fairly tough guy, we’ll always take the former NFL quarterback with a reputation for being tougher than a two-dollar steak.)
Given that Schwartz actually made contact with Harbaugh, Schwartz could be subject to a fine. We’re in the process of trying to sort it all out.
