    Sources: Browns nearly traded for Jim Harbaugh


    The Browns’ unpredictable head-coaching search nearly finished with what would have been the most unpredictable outcome of any head-coaching search since Jon Gruden was traded from the Raiders to the Buccaneers a dozen years ago.

    Per multiple league sources, the Cleveland Browns nearly pulled off a trade with the 49ers for the rights to coach Jim Harbaugh.

    A deal that would have sent multiple draft picks to San Francisco was in place between the teams. But Harbaugh ultimately decided not to leave the 49ers.

    The 49ers could not immediately be reached for comment. Efforts to contact the 49ers continue.

    The Browns declined to comment specifically on whether an effort was made to acquire Jim Harbaugh. The Browns characterized the search as thorough, and the Browns acknowledged that many options were considered. The Browns emphasized that the team is excited about its new coach Mike Pettine.

    A deal would have been stunning, for several reasons. Harbaugh has taken the 49ers to the NFC title game in each of his three years with the team. Also, he would have joined the same division as his brother, Ravens coach John Harbaugh.

    Which means they would have been squaring off at least twice per year, and competing directly for division titles and/or wild-card positioning.

    That is crazy. Unless the 49ers don't like their coach I don't know how they even consider doing this. Nothing is guaranteed when you switch coaches/systems.

    Crazy indeed. I can tell you that from everything I have read, the Niners are more then happy with Harbough. There were rumblings that he may opt out of his contract and leave the team and that may be the only way I see the Niners doing something like this.

    I've heard through my buddies who are 9ers fans that Jim and Balke aren't exactly on good terms. They've been having a tough time reaching an agreement on an extension and maybe tensions are at their peak.

    I don't get this either.

    Harbaugh IMO is one of the best coaches in the league.

    I think what's interesting is the huge fight Harbaugh and Ditka had over Harbaugh calling an audible which resulted in a pick 6 in a game in the early 90s. (It was a huge story in Chicago.) Harbaugh has become a better coach than Ditka ever was.

    There has to be more to the story for the trade talks to go beyond an initial inquiry.
