Harbaugh clashed with the front office, and the deteriorating relationship led to Harbaugh's move to the University of Michigan in 2015. Harbaugh has continued to win at his alma mater, and this week he reminisced on his San Francisco tenure during a podcast chat with Tim Kawakami of The Mercury News.
"I don't think that I was there long enough to be compared with Bill Walsh or Coach Seifert," Harbaugh said. "... Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think we did set a record for coaching there the longest under the present ownership. I take pride in that. Maybe there should be an endurance medal, a courage medal for that."
The article title is very misleading, but I found this funny, anyway. It is true he suffered under the York/Baalke chimaera.
