Barack Obama had his final State of the Union address on Tuesday, and former San Francisco 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh was in attendance as a guest of Rep. Justin Amash (R-Mich.). I was going to ignore this, but as Harbaugh was leaving, TMZ caught up with him, and he got a question about the San Francisco 49ers coaching search!
First off, TMZ has some impressive hustle, but having a camera crew at or near the Capitol is pretty impressive. I think this video is Harbaugh leaving the building following the speech. You can see a sign in the background pointing in the direction of the Library of Congress.
At one point, the camera guy got in a question about the 49ers coaching search. He asked if Harbaugh had anything to say, and Harbaugh kept it simple: "Uh, no, no. Not right now. I just kind of stay in my lane of doing my job at Michigan." I actually think he was caught off guard a little bit by the question. Aside from the randomness of TMZ in DC, getting a question about the 49ers is a little out of left field.
