Golden Nuggets: Jim Harbaugh Signs With 49ers

After the way this past week has gone, I'm fairly certain there is nobody in the free world, or at least among 49ers fans, that doesn't know that yesterday Jim Harbaugh agreed to a five year contract with the San Francisco 49ers worth $25 million. We had a whole ton of coverage of the event yesterday, as well as in the days leading up to it. We have a whole section dedicated to the past two weeks of coverage since Mike Singletary was fired after Week 16. I recommend heading over there to recount the descent into madness many of us suffered. All I know is I plan on getting a ton of sleep this weekend.

As we move forward, Jed York's quotation to open things is appropriate. Our work doesn't end with the hiring of Jim Harbaugh, but rather it only just begins. I'd love to see 1,000 thread comments going up five times a day, but I can recognize how exhausting that has been. However, definitely keep checking in at Niners Nation as we prepare for the Jim Harbaugh era. There is so much to discuss and hopefully little time to discuss it (I'm looking at you NFL and NFLPA!). We'll have some non-Harbaugh coverage today in the form of a playoff thread, but of course we'll also have some more Harbaugh throughout the day.
