Pat White draws the interest of Jim Harbaugh

Pat White apparently did enough in a workout after West Virginia’s pro day to earn a second look from the 49ers, or at least a phone call.

The former Dolphins quarterback told Jim Corbett of USA Today that 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh called to set up a private workout, though there isn’t a firm date for it at the moment.

Coach and I had a conversation about me coming in to work out,” White said. “We haven’t set up a formal date. I’m just going to make sure I keep working hard for when that day comes.

“I pay attention to how his players react to Coach Harbaugh. They all want to win for him. And he seems to treat them how they want to be treated. I’m excited to get to know him on that level — if I do get that opportunity. I’m very optimistic about making it back to the NFL.”

White’s been working with quarterback guru George Whitfield as he tries to earn a second chance. It’s hard to imagine anyone offering more than camp reps and an opportunity, but that’s all he can ask for at the moment.

    I’m sure the haters will be out in full force, but if anyone can bring this guy back in the league as a QB, it’s Coach Harbaugh

    Wouldn’t the Panthers need a similar backup to Cam?

    Lot’s of Harbaugh love here. The last time I heard players talking so highly about their HC in SF, was when Mike Singletary was the boss. :eek:

    White compares himself as a 2009 car with only 4500 miles. He fogot to mention the model, it’s a 2009 rebuilt Yugo GV.
