Though our Org gets some credit, I think Harbaugh's decision had a lot more to do with Harbaugh than the York's. It's obvious it's not about money with Harbaugh, so all things being equal, SF is far and away the most attractive choice.
1. His kids are in school. SF allows him to stay in the Bay.
2. The Bay is one of the most desirable places to live in the US
3. What better division to cut your teeth on than the NFC West? Do you really want to see Billacheat and Rex twice a year?
4. Expectations are low. If the Niners make it back into the playoffs they will be the talk of the NFL and Harbaugh will become a Webzone god!!!
5. We are built to compete in our division, no assembly required. We are not rebuilding.
6. He admired BW, now he has a chance to walk in his footsteps, from Stanford to SF.
