John Harbaugh, Ravens coach, said that he’s interested in knowing about the future of his brother Jim Harbaugh in coaching, and price per head bookmaking companies saw that he dismissed reports made about his family moving him over to Michigan.
Jim Harbaugh’s future was a very important part of the headlines, as it’s widely believed that the four year spell that he had with the 49ers will come to an end after the team faces the Cardinals on Sunday, in their last game of the season, and one that many fans won’t want to miss.
John Harbaugh said that any decision made by his brother is personal, and that he isn’t involved.
“I don’t know where that came from, but it didn’t come from the Harbaughs,” he said. “My dad and I both said [to Jim], don’t tell us. If something gets out, we don’t want the finger pointed at us. Leave us out of it and don’t tell us what you’re going to do.
“I think he’s just trying to figure out what the next thing is for him. And I think more than anything he’s just trying to have a great game on Sunday.”
After the last NFL season, the Browns tried to make a trade for Jim Harbaugh, as the coach just ended his third appearance in a row in an NFC Championship Game. The contract that he has with the 49ers will come to an end after the season of 2015, and fans everywhere wonder what move the coach will make next.
John Harbaugh feels a sense of relief about the fans, the football world, and the media having interest in his brother because now he got “cover,” joked the coach.
“I open up my thing and I see Google and it’s Jim Harbaugh. It’s perfect … it’s all Jim,” he said. “But I will say this: I’m proud of him and I think he’s handled it well. He’s been a giant through all of this uncalled-for type of media onslaught that he faces. Not anyone’s fault, just the nature of the business. I think he’s handled it just perfectly.”
The 49ers’ fans and price per head bookmaking companies would like to see what the future has in store for the coach, as many of them want to see him stay with the team and others want to see him go, but whatever happens, they hope that it will be for the better.
