Breaking News: Jim Harbuagh New 49ers Head Coach
Yes the rumors are true Stanford's now old coach, Jim Harbuagh is taking the Head Coaching job at the 49ers. The 47-year-old Harbaugh went 58-27 overall as a college coach and 29-21 in four seasons at Stanford. He took over a 1-11 team when he was hired in 2006 and quickly turned the program back into a winner and bowl contender. The Cardinal's went 4-8 in his first season, 5-7 the next, then improved to 8-5 and earned a Sun Bowl berth in 2009 the school's first bowl appearance since 2001. This year he went 12-1 and a BCS bowl berth and win in the Orange Bowl. Stanford coach Jim Harbaugh signed a a five-year deal as the new coach of the 49ers that's reportedly worth million. I think this is a great fit for Jim. He completely turned Stanford's program around and now he hopes to do the same at San Fransisco. Jim will also bring 3 of his assitants from Stanford to help on his 49es coaching staff. Personally I think he will be a great NFL coach and I wish him the best of luck.
