San Francisco 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh said he isn’t worried about his future with the team amid speculation that he might not be with the team after this season.
Harbaugh was asked several questions about that subject during his weekly press conference Monday.
Harbaugh, 50, has one year left on his contract with the team, but there has been no talk about the team extending Harbaugh’s contract. His name has been linked to the Oakland Raiders job since October.
“I really, I don't worry about my future," Harbaugh said. "I haven't participated in any of that speculation. I just, I think I have a recessive gene for worrying about my own future."
San Francisco is 7-5 this season and remains two games out of first place in the NFC West going into Sunday’s game against the Raiders.
After the 49ers lost 19-3 at home to the Seattle Seahawks on Thanksgiving, 49ers CEO Jed York tweeted about the loss, saying the team’s performance “wasn't acceptable.”
Harbaugh refused to say if he has spoken with York about that tweet, but also said he has not spoken with York in the past week about his job status.
"To me, that's not significant," Harbaugh said. "What's significant is we move on without excuse and get it right. Make it right. That's our jobs."
Harbaugh also said that offensive coordinator Greg Roman will remain the play-caller, saying he has “unwavering support for all our coaches and our players.”
