Former 49ers coach now Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh was interviewed via podcast by Bay Area sports writer Tim Kawikami of Mercury News that lights out the 49ers fan base on Friday. Harbaugh discusses life after the 49ers, his transition to his alma mater Michigan in Ann Arbor, and shares some insightful thoughts on how his tenure with the San Francisco 49ers ended.
One glaring truth of Jim Harbaugh departure in San Francisco was that it wasn’t mutual contrary to 49ers owner Jed York being portrayed in the media that their separation was mutual. “I didn’t leave the 49ers. The 49ers hierarchy left me,” Harbaugh said during the 30-minute interview. So, basically Jed York lied the situaion. The shocking part was Harbaugh confirmed that he was told that he would be replaced two games before the season end following the loss to the Seattle Seahawks in Week 15.
