Ravens coach John Harbaugh said Sunday’s game against the 49ers would not be about revenge for his brother. Jim Harbaugh, now head coach at the University of Michigan, departed as 49ers coach last season amid acrimony with the 49ers’ front office.
With the Ravens (1-4) struggling, Harbaugh has other pressing matters.
“That’s very much irrelevant to what we’re trying to accomplish,” Harbaugh said during a conference call with Bay Area reporters. “We got our hands full with what we’re trying to do as a football team to think about any of that stuff.
“I’ve said this before, many times, but Jim loved his time there. He loved the players, loved the fans, loved being a 49er. They had four great years, and, you know, everybody moves on to the next thing in life. And I think once you kind of realize all that…that’s how he feels about it. He feels great about it. If he feels great about it, I feel great about it for him. Other than that, I’m not involved in that at all. Never was.”
Jim Harbuagh definitely landed on his feet. Michigan is riding a five-game winning streak heading intoi Saturday’s showdown against Michigan St.
The Ravens and John Harbaugh could use a five-game winning streak of their own.
