lol so another team interested in a coach causes a deep rift? this happens when you have a successful coach under contract that other teams want such as was the case with Gruden or even Rivers in the NBA
the story got leaked by a disgruntled & now former Browns GM (Lombardi)...leave it up to the media to blow it all out of context...he's got two years left on his contract...smh
49ers CEO Jed York said Monday that the Cleveland Browns did inquire about the prospect of trading for 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh, putting a new twist on things after initially saying the story wasn't true.
The Browns called the 49ers in January with the intent of speaking with 49ers offensive coordinator Greg Roman and defensive line coach Jim Tomsula about the Browns coaching vacancy. During that conversation, the Browns asked about Harbaugh's availability via trade.
York says: "That line of questioning went not far at all. We had no interest in entering those discussions. We want Jim to be our head coach, and we've said that very clearly."
