49ers announce they have parted ways with Jim Harbaugh

Dec 28, 2014 at 5:11 PM--


The San Francisco 49ers officially announced today that the team and head coach Jim Harbaugh have mutually agreed to part ways.

CEO Jed York and general manager Trent Baalke will meet with the media at 1 PM tomorrow.

Harbaugh was seen saying final goodbyes to individual players following the 49ers' season finale victory over the Arizona Cardinals.

York stated that the team is now squarely focused on finding their next head coach and that he is confident in Baalke's ability to lead that process.

It was reported late last night that Harbaugh had decided to take the job with the University of Michigan, who was reported to have offered him a 6-year, $48 million deal. A press conference to announce him as the new head coach is scheduled for Tuesday morning.

However, reports today have stated that an NFL team, possibly the Oakland Raiders, may try to make a late run at Harbaugh.

49ers set tone of dominance with long opening drive against Jaguars, even if it didn't end the way they wanted

As was the case against the Los Angeles Rams last week, the San Francisco 49ers sent a loud, and clear message right off the bat in their 30-10 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday with a long opening drive that quickly established their dominance and set the tone for what would take place the rest of the game—even if what happened at the end of the drive felt somewhat disappointing. Whereas last week's opening drive in the 49ers' 31-10 win over the Rams came off a turnover and ended in a touchdown after lasting 18 plays, 93 yards, and eleven minutes and three seconds, this week's opening drive came after the opening kickoff and took up thirteen minutes and five seconds while spanning 20 plays and 87 yards before the 49ers took a 3-0 lead on a 20-yard Robbie

Last week, Hall of Famer Steve Young was a guest on KNBR's Tolbert, Krueger and Brooks Show. He spoke about talking (earlier that week) to Hall of Fame wide receiver, Jerry Rice, about what he [Rice] was thinking about the 49ers. This apparently took place the day after the San Francisco 49ers lost, in embarrassing fashion, to an Arizona Cardinals team that was missing many of their starters, including quarterback Kyle Murray. "I go, 'What do you think?'" Young said. "He goes, 'There's no dogs.' And I got to interpret that. There's no dogs on there. You watch the team go on, go off, everyone's like, 'OK.' Young went on to discuss how the 49ers' handling of the



49ers' Fred Warner critical of his own play but coach feels the LB 'will be fine'

The San Francisco 49ers rewarded Fred Warner with a 5-year, $95 million contract extension during the offseason. The star linebacker looked to be worth every penny of that deal with how he played in his first three NFL seasons. Warner recorded four sacks, 14 quarterback hits, three interceptions, and five forced fumbles during that span. This season, Warner has no sacks, no quarterback hits, no interceptions, and no forced fumbles. His Pro Football Focus grade of 71.3 is the second-highest of his career, but a significant drop from the career-high grade of 88.6 earned last season. In pass coverage, opposing quarterbacks have completed 20 passes and a touchdown on 24 targets in Warner's direction, per Pro Football Focus. The 83.3 percent completion percentage given up this
