49ers CEO Jed York denies reports that Jim Harbaugh won't return
San Francisco 49ers CEO Jed York addressed reports Monday regarding coach Jim Harbaugh's job status after this season.
Jay Glazer of Fox Sports said Sunday that he doesn't see "any way" Harbaugh returns after this season, even if the team were to win the Super Bowl.
"It's categorically not true," York said on "The Rich Eisen Show" of the notion Harbaugh will not be back as the 49ers coach.
York posted the following message to his Twitter account on Sunday. "Jim is my coach. We are trying to win a SB, not a personality or popularity contest. Any more questions?"
Harbaugh, 50, has led the 49ers to three NFC Championship games and one Super Bowl over four seasons.
