Report: Browns almost traded for Jim Harbaugh

jim harbaughAccording to ProFootballTalk.com,  the Cleveland Browns almost pulled off a trade with the 49ers that would have landed them head coach Jim Harbaugh.

Per multiple league sources, the Cleveland Browns nearly pulled off a trade with the 49ers for the rights to coach Jim Harbaugh.

A deal that would have sent multiple draft picks to San Francisco was in place between the teams. But Harbaugh ultimately decided not to leave the 49ers.

I guess Harbaugh’s heart may not be in coaching the 49ers for a very long time if he almost bolted for Cleveland.

Update: ESPN’s Chris Mortenson has now confirmed PFT’s report.
