Harbaugh on former 49ers RB Frank Gore: ‘He’s headed for the Hall of Fame’

Mar 22, 2017 at 10:17 AM--


Former San Francisco 49ers head coach and current coach with the University of Michigan, Jim Harbaugh, joined the Taylor Price Talk podcast on Wednesday to discuss the school's football program, its upcoming trip to Rome, the NFL Draft, and more.

As most of the Niner Faithful remember, Harbaugh and the 49ers unceremoniously "mutually" parted ways following the 2014 season. What followed was three head coach searches in as many years before the 49ers finally landed on head coach Kyle Shanahan, who looks capable of taking the team in the right direction.

Harbaugh continues to have a strong following in the Bay Area from fans of both the 49ers and Stanford. The Michigan coach said that he is always ready to offer advice to any of his former players. "It's a long and trusting friendship when you're on a team with somebody," Harbaugh said.

During the interview with our friend Taylor Price, former 49ers running back Frank Gore was brought up. Gore continues to see success since moving on from San Francisco and joining the Indianapolis Colts. "It's been awesome," Harbaugh said. "Really almost the definition of a long and trusting friendship, I feel like I have with Frank. And Frank is one of those guys that calls and texts from time to time and I'll do the same. Just, 'Hey, thinking about you. Congratulations on another great game.' It's been really, really good keeping in touch with Frank.

"I know that, on my part, there's a real admiration and respect for Frank as a friend, as a person, as a football player, as a dad. I love the way he is as a dad to his kids. It's amazing. I keep saying he's headed for the Hall of Fame. He's also a Hall of Fame guy already."

Harbaugh also briefly shared his thoughts on the news of 49ers legend Dwight Clark announcing that he has ALS. "So sad to hear about the ALS," Harbaugh said. "I want to wish him well. He's a good man, a good friend."

If you open the Notes app on San Francisco 49ers running back Raheem Mostert's phone, you'll see a list of six NFL teams. They are the Philadelphia Eagles, Miami Dolphins, Baltimore Ravens, Cleveland Browns, New York Jets, and Chicago Bears. Those are the six teams that gave up on him before he signed with the San Francisco 49ers in 2016. "Always there (on my phone)," Mostert recently told Jordan Schultz of ESPN. "It's never leaving until I can finally write it off." What does it mean to finally write it off? Mostert paused for a second to think about that question from Schultz. His mind possibly thinking about those six teams and how being cut by each has motivated him during his NFL journey. Mostert entered the NFL as an undrafted free agent out of

A new scripted series based on the high school life of former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick is headed to streaming giant Netflix, according to Vanity Fair. Titled Colin in Black & White, the six-episode series is being created by Kaepernick and Oscar-nominated director Ava DuVernay. It will explore the "foundation of Kaepernick's budding activism," reports Vanity Fair. That, of course, led to the controversy in 2016 when Kaepernick started peacefully protesting against social injustice during the national anthem before NFL games. "Too often we see race and Black stories portrayed through a white lens," Kaepernick said in

Antonio Brown could shift balance of power away from 49ers, says former NFL executive

By David Bonilla

There is a whole lot of speculation right now that Antonio Brown might rejoin quarterback Tom Brady in Tampa Bay. The veteran wide receiver played one game last year with Brady in New England and even hauled in a touchdown for the Patriots. Of course, that story has already been disputed. Should Brown land with an NFC team like the Buccaneers, though, some believe that it could be enough to shift the balance of power within the conference. One former NFL executive turned analyst, Michael Lombardi, thinks that should Brown land with a team in the NFC West, like the Seattle Seahawks, it would shift the balance of power within the division away from the San Francisco
