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.

Why the Secondary Is Key to the 49ers Week 3 Matchup with the Cardinals

Sep 19 2014 8:18pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

The San Francisco 49ers have endured a mixed start to the 2014 NFL season, with their dominant 28-17 win over the Dallas Cowboys followed up by a hugely disappointing 28-20 loss to the Chicago Bears in the first regular-season game at Levi's Stadium on Sunday. Jim Harbaugh's team will now look to bounce back from that setback with victory against the division rival Arizona Cardinals, who head ...

49ers-Cardinals Game Could Prove Crucial to NFC West Hierarchy

Sep 19 2014 1:39am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

It's only Week 3 in the NFL, but Sunday's game between the Arizona Cardinals and San Francisco 49ers has a feel of extra importance to it. Especially for San Francisco.  The Cardinals are 2-0. They could take a two-game lead over the 49ers. They're 9-2 in their last 11 regular-season games. They're a major threat to the NFC West's status quo hierarchy.  Which is why the 49ers (1-1) need a win. ...

Vernon Davis limping through the locker room, questions abound

Sep 18 2014 3:56pm CDT | Source: ninersnation

The San Francisco 49ers tight end depth remains a question mark, as Vernon Davis was seen limping heavily through the locker room. Does this mean he might not play, or is he sand-bagging a little bit? The San Francisco 49ers are back to practice today, and Vernon Davis's ankle is apparently looking kind of rough. According to the beat writers, Davis walked through the locker room without his crutches, but with a serious limp. Vernon Davis has ditched his crutches but is walki ...
