Stanford coach Jim Harbaugh is not scheduled to interview for the head coaching position in Denver, according to a report in The Denver Post.
Former Stanford QB John Elway is the vice president of football operations with the Broncos. He spoke with Harbaugh informally earlier this week when Elway attended the Orange Bowl, a 40-12 Stanford win over Virginia Tech.
Elway was quoted that he'd indicated to Harbaugh that the Broncos would like to engage in discussions over their head coaching vacancy.
According to The Post, the Broncos had discussed bringing Harbaugh to Denver earlier in the week. When that couldn't be arranged officials considered flying to the Bay Area but a date and time for a meeting were not set.
Harbaugh has met with Stanford, the San Francisco 49ers and the Miami Dolphins in the past few days.
SANTA CLARA -- The 49ers on Friday waived linebacker Ray-Ray Armstrong to clear a roster spot.
The 49ers will activate defensive lineman Tank Carradine from injured reserve, coach Kyle Shanahan said. Carradine missed seven games after sustaining an ankle injury against the Los Angeles Rams on Sept. 21.
Armstrong started five games for the 49ers early in the season before losing his job. Reuben Foster returned to the starting line after missing time with ankle and ribs injuries. Veteran Brock Coyle has established himself as the starting middle linebacker.
Armstrong ranks second on the 49ers behind Jaquiski Tartt with 53 tackles on the season. He also leads the 49ers with two interceptions. Then-general manager Trent Baalke signed Armstrong to a two-year contract extension last December that included a $500,000 signing bonus.
The 49ers will have their largest group of healthy inactive players on Sunday against the Seattle Seahawks. However, right tackle Trent Brown is questionable after sustaining a shoulder injury late in Thursday's practice, Shanahan said.
