SANTA CLARA – In keeping with his oft-stated personal policy, 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh did not comment Thursday on reports Michigan has offered him a lucrative contract.
“As you know, I only talk about the job that I have,” Harbaugh said on Thursday. “We’ve been together a long time. Always been my policy.
“I don’t talk any other job than the one I have. Or talk about anybody else’s process.”
Michigan reportedly has offered Harbaugh a six-year, $49 million contract. Harbaugh has one year remaining on his five-year, $25 million contract with the 49ers, but numerous sources around the organization believe his tenure is coming to an end.
When asked whether he intends to remain with the 49ers, Harbaugh answered, “Yeah, I’ve said I’m going to finish this until the end. My focus is the same as the players’ focus. It’s the same as the coaches’ focus, the focus on the practice field, the focus in meetings, by our players, by our coaches and by me.”
