There is no love lost between San Francisco 49ers cornerback Richard Sherman and former Niners head coach Jim Harbaugh. Sherman has made it clear that he does not like Harbaugh, his former college coach with whom he butted heads at Stanford, and has no desire to mend the relationship.

Sherman made that clear again on Tuesday — in case there were any lingering doubters — while speaking with reporters during a Super Bowl LIV media event at the team's downtown Miami hotel. He was asked if there is any incentive to reach out to Harbaugh and talk things through.

"There's no interest in mending it," Sherman said before quickly moving on to the next question.

Is it ironic that Sherman, a former rival with the Seattle Seahawks, now seeks his second Super Bowl championship with the 49ers — the team Harbaugh coached once upon a time?

"They may put me in the dictionary right next to 'irony' at some point in time after this story is all written," Sherman said on Monday during the massive and often chaotic Super Bowl LIV Opening Night. "At the end of the day, I'm a football player, and I'm here to help my team win. If it's the San Francisco 49ers or whatever team I'm playing on, that's all I care about.

"(49ers CEO) Jed (York) had a funny story about when I was coming out (of college) because they had a higher draft grade on me than most teams, and Harbaugh came and took me off the draft board. [York] was really upset about that, but I'll let you guys ask him about the rest of it."

Sherman also admitted that he had a strong desire to get Harbaugh pushed out of the NFL.

"I wanted to put him out of the league," Sherman said via Phil Barber of the Santa Rosa Press Democrat. "And once I got that done, I had no animosity toward the 49ers organization."

Harbaugh's 49ers exit later opened the door for a mutually-beneficial Sherman-to-49ers marriage. Now, Sherman and his Niner teammates are one win away from earning the organization its sixth Super Bowl championship.
