Harbaugh and the 49ers make it official…to part ways.


Harbaugh

Like the New York Jets the San Francisco 49ers made official what everyone already knew …that they were parting ways with Head coach Jim Harbaugh.

“Jim and I have come to the conclusion that it is in our mutual best interest to move in different directions,” said CEO Jed York. “We thank Jim for bringing a tremendous competitive nature and a great passion for the game to the 49ers. He and his staff restored a winning culture that has been the standard for our franchise throughout its history.”

This announcement had to take place to clear the way for Harbaugh to be introduced at Ann Habor, Michigan tomorrow as their new head coach. There was talk that Harbaugh could land in New york with the Jets but once Michigan made it clear they wanted Harbaugh it was just a question of time.

The 49ers came  close to their sixth Super Bowl championship after the 2012 season, losing 34-31 to Harbaugh’s big brother, John, and the Baltimore Ravens.

Harbaugh had a 49-22-1 overall record in four years with San Francisco.
