49ers Have Initial Talks With Ex-Broncos Coach Josh McDaniels
They met for 6.5 hours today, there seemed to be a deal in place for Jim Harbaugh to sign on as the 49ers’ next head coach and all Harbaugh had to do was sign the paper but he told 49ers owner Jed York and GM Trent Baalke that he had to at least listen to what Miami owner Steve Ross had to offer, and that’s about as close to Harbaugh as the 49ers might ever get. There are multiple reports that the Dolphins are set to offer Harbaugh a mind-bogglingly massive deal averaging $7M to $8M a year, which would possibly top Bill Belichick as the No. 1 deal among all NFL coaches. The 49ers, according to an NFL source, are prepared to offer Harbaugh about $5M per over five years and if Harbaugh gets that mega-offer from Miami, the source said, the 49ers are unlikely to go dollar-for-dollar and would be prepared to move on from Harbaugh. An NFL source indicated that York and Baalke already have had initial discussions with fired Denver coach Josh McDaniels. Source: San Jose Mercury News
