It Looks Like Jim Harbaugh Is Going To Miami

I don't know the sections of Miami, so I don't know whether South Beach is just a section or if that's another name for the city, but I'm willing to bet it's a section and also willing to bet that Sun Life Stadium is not in it. So I didn't go with a "taking his talents to South Beach pun," though I'm sure it's already been used at this point.

According to mostly Tim Kawakami tweets, Jim Harbaugh is just about ready to accept a deal with the Miami Dolphins, and that the 49ers cannot compete financially in these sweepstakes. If it's for some unGodly amount of money, then I understand and I do not fault the Yorks, but if it's still pretty negative in light of their public comments regarding the situation.

It appears as though Jim just wants the money - which is totally OK, but it's a bit insulting that he'd allegedly give the thumbs up to Trent Baalke and then, once faced with all the dollar signs in front of him, claim that there is something wrong with the front office structure. There may be problems in said structure, but it's definitely not the reason Harbaugh is not the guy. It's all money.

Now - what next? The 49ers had a backup plan, the oft-troubled Josh McDaniels, which screams of last minute desperation. Fortunately, Josh McDaniels is also put-off by the 49ers front-office structure and I suppose his concern is legitimate. I would probably off myself if it was McDaniels.

So now we're sitting with a GM that we hired specifically because Jim Harbaugh was OK with him and he was cheap, and none of the hot head-coaching prospects are available or want anything to do with the 49ers. After McDaniels, the 49ers will probably turn to Raiders offensive coordinator Hue Jackson, which just hurts when you've been led on like this.

Other candidates include Brian Billick and John Fox. I do not personally see Jon Gruden or Bill Cowher as legitimate options for the 49ers. I suppose there's those two folks with the M at the beginning of their names, but I personally know nothing about them at all. Mularkey and Mornhinweg.
