This Sunday brings another report that casts doubt on Harbaugh’s future in San Francisco.
Jay Glazer of FOX Sports reports that he sees “no way” that Harbaugh remains the coach of the 49ers in 2015 even if the team were to win the Super Bowl in January. Per Glazer, Harbaugh’s style has “worn thin” in the organization and the situation isn’t one that will hold beyond this season. How the 49ers and Harbaugh might part ways with a year left on his contract wasn’t addressed.
If Harbaugh were to become available, there would be no shortage of suitors for his services. One can’t ignore the sheer number of reports about issues with his personality in the 49ers organization, but Harbaugh has won a lot of games with the team and that will matter more to pro and college teams looking for their next coach. The Raiders will definitely be in the market for a coach and perhaps more if Harbaugh is looking for more control on the personnel side, while his alma mater lost at Rutgers on Sunday in the latest death blow to the Brady Hoke era.
Harbaugh will likely be asked about this report as well, so we’ll see what if he says anything about whatever fire is creating all this smoke.
