San Francisco 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh has implicitly stated he has no interest in the vacant Texans Longhorns head coaching job.

San Francisco 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh is not interested in the Texas Longhorns head coaching job. 

Harbaugh made this clear on Dec. 11 -- a day when Mack Brown was still at the helm in Texas -- when he spoke with The San Jose Mercury News' Steve Cokran. The 49ers' mentor said,"Are you trying to be funny? I don't talk about any job other than the one I have." 

NFL.com's Gregg Rosenthal also confirms Harbaugh's intentions of staying put in San Francisco in his Dec. 15 report . Part of it reads,"NFL Media columnist Michael Silver reported Sunday on NFL Network's 'NFL GameDay Morning' that Harbaugh has told his superiors with the San Francisco 49ers that he's staying with the 49ers."  

In addition, Eric Branch of SFGate.com says 49ers owner Eddie DeBartolo already spoke with his nephew, 49ers CEO Jed York, on Dec. 14 about drawing up a contract extension for Harbaugh at the end of the 2013 NFL season.

DeBartolo said,"It's important that he (York) gets things tied up. And we talked yesterday and I think they're well on their way to getting it done."

Branch also notes that Harbaugh "is in the third year of a five-year, $25 million contract."  

The chances of the 49ers head coach going back to the collegiate level seem pretty bleak. NFPost.com's Jason Cole reported on Dec. 15 that Harbaugh was given an offer to coach his alma mater, the University of Michigan, when he was at Stanford University. However, his intention all along was to coach in the pro ranks. 

Rumors about Harbaugh being on the shortlist for the Longhorns job should they not hire Alabama Crimson Tide head coach Nick Saban became viral earlier last week, per Cole. Saban signing an extension with Alabama in the $7 million to $7.5 million range per annum ended all speculations about him going to Texas. 

Brown, who had been Longhorns coach since 1998, "is retiring after 16 seasons," according to a Dec. 15 ESPN update . The report indicates he "acknowledged it was time for a change" after Texas had gone just 30-20 in the last four seasons.

Brown resigned at approximately 4 p.m. EST on Saturday, per a University of Texas source who told ESPN's Shelley Smith. He ends his tenure after a dominant run from 2001-09, when the Longhorns went 101-16, made the national championship game twice and eventually won the national title in 2005 after an undefeated 12-0 season.

For his part, the 49-year-old Harbaugh has amassed a 33-11-1 record since he took over the 49ers' head coaching duties in 2011, per Pro-Football-Reference.com. He has won two division championships and one conference championship, with the latter coming in 2012 after San Francisco made it to Super Bowl XLVII but lost to the eventual champions Baltimore Ravens.

San Francisco 49ers v Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Friday, July 25, 2014 edition of the Golden Nuggets, a daily compilation of San Francisco 49ers links from around the Internet. The San Francisco 49ers officially got training camp underway on Thursday, and it sure was a busy day -- or maybe it just seemed that way given the lack of news we've had over the past month or so. I hope all of you took the news from training camp and acted accordingly: you panicked in mass hysteria when something bad happened, and you overreacted ...

Jul 24 2014 9:54am CDT | Source: SBNation

L
Brett Favre didn't just win a Super Bowl in the 1990s, he was the most rapped about of all NFL quarterbacks. Ryan Nanni runs the stats to see how the QBs stacked up in the 1990s.

The Ananke of Brock Osweiler

Jul 23 2014 12:00pm CDT | Source: milehighreport

Osweiler continues on his developmental arc with the Broncos, but the totality of that arc, and the varied threads that are woven into it, may surprise even Broncos fans. As John walks by his son's room, his attention is caught by a note taped up on the bedroom wall, where his son can see it everyday.  It is an unassuming note, a list of goals his son wants to attain.  They are mostly sports related, not surprising since his son had been throwing a football since he was pract ...

President Obama Delivers Statement On Situation In Ukraine
Throughout the buildup to San Francisco 49ers training camp, the competition behind ageless running back Frank Gore has loomed as a key position battle. The team's young stable of reserve backs has never been more impressive, and yet the most complete player among them has flown decidedly under the radar.  We're talking, of course, about fourth-year tailback Kendall Hunter.  Having served as the primary backup for each of his three professional seasons, Hunter ha ...

Jul 21 2014 1:07pm CDT | Source: SportsGrid

Celebrities on the Red Bull Energy Station
The 2014 NFL season will be remembered for two things: The end of the San Francisco 49ers dominance and Tony Romo’s final game as a Cowboy. That’s because Peyton Manning will win the Super Bowl — as he is supposed to — so no one will really remember that moment. Just the sad realities of the 2014 season. Below, we’ve ranked all 32 teams based on their odds to win the 2014 Super Bowl, and added in some bold-ass predictions we think are plausible-though-unlikely. So don’t s ...
