SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - San Francisco 49ers CEO Jed York denies that his team nearly traded coach Jim Harbaugh to the Cleveland Browns last month for draft picks.
York shot down a report Friday by Pro Football Talk, posting on Twitter: ''Is this on the record? Report isn't true.'' Pro Football Talk reported that a deal was in place that would have sent Harbaugh to coach Cleveland, but he opted to stay put. The 50-year-old Harbaugh just completed his third season of a $25 million, five-year contract and declined to address the subject of an extension. The 49ers (14-5) lost to the NFC West rival and eventual Super Bowl champion Seahawks in the NFC championship game, 23-17.
Cleveland hired Bills defensive coordinator Mike Pettine to replace Rob Chudzinski, fired after going 4-12 his first year.
