Report: 49ers won’t beg Jim Harbaugh to stick around

According to Michael Silver of the NFL Network,  the San Francisco 49ers don’t plan on begging Jim Harbaugh to stick around as both sides struggle to come to an agreement on a contract extension.

“As much as York and his top executives value Harbaugh and appreciate the swift and sublime success he has enjoyed since arriving in 2011, a stretch that has included three consecutive NFC Championship Game appearances and a near-miss Super Bowl defeat, they are not inclined to beg him to stick around, either through words or emphatic financial gestures of support,” Silver writes.

The Niners feel like they can win with or without Harbaugh.

“Simply put, the Niners’ brass believes that general manager Trent Baalke has assembled a talented team and is likely to continue making smart roster decisions — and that Harbaugh is hardly the only person who could coach this team to a championship,” Silver writes.
