– Jim Harbaugh has been the subject of rumors and reports that he wants out of San Francisco and/or that the team is tiring of his surly behavior. The 49ers coach played down the situation Tuesday, dismissing a suggestion that he wants to leave the team before his contract expires in two years.
Added Harbaugh: “I see all these reports about how I want to be the highest-paid coach in football. They presume I covet some kind of extension. I have never said to anybody that I want to be the highest-paid coach in football. I have never said that to anybody — my wife, my brother, my dad. I make plenty of money.
“The other one is that I want more power. I have never said that, nor do I want any more power than I have. I coach the team. I’ve told my owner I don’t want any more power. I want to coach the team. And I’ve never told anybody else otherwise.”
There have been reports that Harbaugh is at odds with general manager Trent Baalke and that the team eventually will need to choose between the two.
“We’re both demanding and we want to be accountable for ourselves, for each other,” Harbaugh said. “If you haven’t had a brother, you probably don’t understand the relationship between the GM and the head coach. We’re partners on the same team. I have great respect for him. He works extremely hard at it and is very good at it. We are all part of a team. I believe in the structure we have. I don’t want to change anything that we do in that regard.”
As for the Browns trying to acquire him in a trade, Harbaugh indicated that was not of his doing, nor did he have any intention of going along with it.
“There was never any opportunity to leave the San Francisco 49ers,” he said. “If that existed, it existed in somebody else’s mind, not mine. I am too fond of my team, the players, the coaches. I really feel like we have one of the best, if not the best organizations in football.”
McQueary, then a Penn State assistant, allegedly told the team’s receivers in a positional meeting about his history of abuse, explaining that he could relate to the boy who was abused by Sandusky. The meeting was held Nov. 9, 2011, one day after prosecutors revealed that McQueary had witnessed the incident a decade earlier.
McQueary refused comment about the matter and only told the magazine that he still has respect for longtime coach Joe Paterno, who was forced out after the scandal broke and died shortly thereafter.
“I love that man more than you can ever possibly say,” McQueary said. “He’s an unbelievable man. He did unbelievable things. He handled this thing in the best way he could. Was it foolproof or perfect? No. But I didn’t handle this in a foolproof or perfect way either. I am loyal to him to this day. I absolutely love him.”
The story also indicates that McQueary, who filed a $4 million whistleblower lawsuit against the school after his contract was not renewed in the summer of 2012, had a gambling problem and at least once bet on Penn State to cover an eight-point spread against Michigan State in a 1996 game when he was a backup quarterback.
– Ian Kinsler, who was traded from the Rangers to the Tigers this offseason, turned some heads with his comments in an ESPN The Magazine story in which he called Rangers general manager Jon Daniels a “sleazeball” and said he hoped Texas went 0-162 this year.
“I’m not happy about it. I think that the story was written for drama, and taken a little out of context,” he said. “I understand there were some things directed at the GM, but as far as my teammates and the fans, there’s nothing negative to say about that, and I think the quotes taken about the general manager were taken a little out of context.”
As for the 0-162 comment, Kinsler said: “That’s a matter of telling a joke.”

QUOTE OF THE DAY: “I did have one good line that probably somebody else has already thought of: It looked like [Panthers GM] Dale [Tallon] went kicking some tires and found one that needed pumping.” – Panthers goalie Tim Thomas, on the team’s acquisition of former rival Roberto Luongo
