"Harbaugh Watch" in full force for 49ers fans

Jan 5, 2011 at 1:53 PM


San Francisco 49ers fans are glued to the internet today as "Harbaugh Watch" is at its peak.

The 49ers are reportedly having a meeting with Stanford coach Jim Harbaugh today at an undisclosed location away from the team's training facility. Team President and CEO Jed York along with newly hired General Manager Trent Baalke will likely be the ones to meet with Harbaugh.

There is also some fan speculation that Eddie Debartolo, who has been a close advisor to his nephew Jed York in these decision making processes, may be involved. Although, that is not confirmed.

Harbaugh just helped the Cardinal to a 12-1 record this past season and guided the team to a 40-12 Orange Bowl victory over Virginia Tech on Monday night.

The 49ers also met with Oakland Raiders offensive coordinator Hue Jackson this morning, a meeting that satisfied the NFL's Rooney Rule stating that teams must interview minority candidates for head coaching and senior football operations opportunities.

The University of Michigan was reportedly interested in Harbaugh as well. Although, they have even stated that Harbaugh is headed for the NFL.

Other NFL teams that have shown strong interest in Harbaugh include the Denver Broncos and Miami Dolphins. The Dolphins currently have Tony Sparano as their coach.

49ers' Brock Purdy: Full offseason has been beneficial

By David Bonilla

Brock Purdy's last full offseason came as a rookie in 2022. However, calling it a "full offseason" is misleading. He was buried on the San Francisco 49ers' depth chart, limiting his practice reps. Despite this, Purdy showed enough promise to earn a spot on the 53-man roster. Just months later, he took over the starting quarterback job and hasn't relinquished it since. Last offseason was crucial for Purdy's development. Unfortunately, he was recovering from surgery to repair a torn ulnar collateral ligament (UCL) in his right elbow. Purdy didn't get to throw to teammates until training camp, leaving some uncertainty about his effectiveness following such a significant injury. Purdy finished last season with a single-season franchise-record 4,280 passing yards,

Ricky Pearsall wore a blue non-contact jersey during Tuesday's practice, the first of the San Francisco 49ers' only mandatory minicamp during the offseason program. Head coach Kyle Shanahan explained that the rookie wide receiver had a "little soreness" left over from organized team activities (OTAs), and the jersey was a precautionary measure. "When it's like that, we still want him in there, but it allows guys to avoid him as much as possible," Shanahan said. Despite the minor soreness, the coaching staff has been pleased with Pearsall's early development. The 49ers selected him with the No. 31 overall pick in April's draft, seeking to boost an already talent-filled receiver room. The team's leading receiver from last season, Brandon Aiyuk,
