49ers agree to let Jim Harbaugh out of his contract

Dec 28, 2014 at 3:52 AM--


Multiple sources are now reporting that the San Francisco 49ers have agreed to let head coach Jim Harbaugh out of his contract. There will be a press conference on Tuesday in Ann Arbor to announce him as the new head coach of the University of Michigan.

Harbaugh is expected to be on the sideline for his final game with the 49ers today against the Arizona Cardinals at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara.

Harbaugh, considered by many as one of the best coaches in the NFL and a fan favorite, led the 49ers to the NFC Championship game in each of his first three seasons as head coach, something that had never been done before. He also took the 49ers to the Super Bowl in his second season.

It is likely that the 49ers will part ways with certain staff members as well as the team searches for a replacement, if they don't already have one in mind.

Harbaugh has a 48–22–1 (.683) head coaching record and was 43–19–1 (.690) in the regular season.

He played college football at the University of Michigan before being drafted to the NFL in 1987.

Update:

According to Matt Barrows of the Sacramento Bee, the 49ers will sit down with Harbaugh tonight or tomorrow morning. Interviews for his replacement will begin this week with Vic Fangio and Jim Tomsula being the internal candidates.

A look at the details of Fred Warner's contract extension with the 49ers

Soon after news of the deal broke, Pro Football Talk released the details of linebacker Fred Warner's massive contract extension with the San Francisco 49ers. The five-year deal has a potential value of $95.225 million, including $40.5 million guaranteed. That would earn the All-Pro linebacker about $19 million a year. Interestingly, the contract's final two years are voidable, so the 49ers can choose to pick up those years if they find themselves in a healthy salary-cap situation. If they don't, then they have some options. Looking only at the extension itself and not 2021, which is the final year of his rookie deal, here is a year-by-year breakdown,

On July 6th, I gave my initial thoughts on what a Fred Warner extension could potentially look like and just two weeks later, the linebacker signed a massive extension to stay with the 49ers. Warner's five-year deal has a potential value of $95.225 million, including $40.5 million guaranteed. The extension kicks in during the 2022 season, not the upcoming year, keeping Warner's current cap hit the same at a very reasonable $3.636 million. Per Spotrac, Warner's cap hits are $8.164 million, $18.525 million, $22.1 million, $24.45 million, and $21.986 million from 2022–2026, respectively. He earns $40.5 million in total guarantees to go

Fred Warner was overwhelmed by over 200 text messages and calls from friends and colleagues on Wednesday when news broke that the San Francisco 49ers were signing him to a massive five-year extension, making him the highest-paid linebacker in the NFL. The newfound riches won't change his attitude, though. Instead, Warner will continue working to earn the respect of his peers and do whatever he can to contribute to the team goal of winning a championship. "My goals and aspirations are always going to be set to the highest standard, higher than anybody else can put on me," Warner told reporters on Thursday. "And that holds true to the season, even before this contract was set and done. My (personal) goals and my goals for this team, they don't change. So that's what's exciting,
