Now that everything is over and Harbough is with Michigan, what are the 49ers going to do now? It's hard enough to find a good head coach in the NFL. The front office has already screwed up the best head coach they have had in many years. It's unheard of to get rid of a head coach after 4 years of a 5 year contract with his kind of record. 3 championship and 1 super bowl visit. Most franchises would laugh at the 49ers front office for this, and I'm sure they did behind closed doors along with cheers and joy for the fact that Harbaugh is no longer a competitor...for now.
To add to the 49ers hardship, Frank Gore and Michael Crabtree are now free agents. Now the 49ers will have a new head coach,which means a different atmosphere in all aspects of the franchise including relationships, and a need to fill a major position with large shoes to fill in both running back and wide receiver, and a fairly new talented quarterback that's needs direction from a former quarterback now coach like Harbough. To keep this short and to the point, I think the 49ers will fall into a deeper slump as they are officially in rebuilding stage.
As a side note, Congratulations to coach Harbough with his new Michigan position and may he have fun and have the freedom to do his job as he should have been able to with the 49ers. Because of him, I'm now a Michigan fan and will follow to observe the rise of the next big college team.
And those are my thoughts. Have a blessed day.
