After finding out that the NFL plans on forcing teams to appear on Hard Knocks of they can’t get a volunteer each season, 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh told reporters that he wouldn’t mind doing it.
“If that’s something we were in position to do, then we’d certainly do it,” said Harbaugh via 49ers.com.
Harbaugh has an idea on how to make the show better.
“I think it’d be good if there was a, kind of a criteria,” the 49ers coach said.
Harbaugh said he wondered if teams would be selected depending on how they finished the previous season.
“I think that would be something everybody would know going in,” Harbaugh said in supporting his idea. “It would be fair, so it wouldn’t be arbitrarily assigned.”
He knows the show is very popular and isn’t going anywhere.
“There’s going to be teams that are going to be on ‘Hard Knocks’ and that seems like a popular thing and something people want to see,” Harbaugh said. “So, I don’t see it going away. You could stamp your feet and say I don’t want to do it, but I don’t know how productive that is for anybody concerned.”
He even admitted he likes to watch Hard Knocks.
“I find it quite entertaining,” Harbaugh said.
