Veteran Bills Front Office Execs Reportedly Clashing With GM, Coach
Published February 24, 2014
ON THE DOCK OF THE BAY: CBSSPORTS.com's Jason La Canfora wrote things "are not getting better behind the scenes" for the 49ers, as there was "a persistent rumble throughout the combine about the extent of the rift between coach Jim Harbaugh and the team's front office." It "doesn't seem like it will go away, and there is increasing buzz that the team might have to decide between Harbaugh or GM Trent Baalke." Sources said that the two "are barely speaking," and "almost all communication is through email." Sources added that Harbaugh "also has a strained relationship" with team President Paraag Marathe, and "has clashed with many within the organization." La Canfora: "It could prove untenable. If anything, the impression I got this week was that the situation there is actually much worse than how it has been portrayed in the media" (CBSSPORTS.com, 2/23).
