SANTA CLARA – Here’s what Jim Harbaugh said about his contract Friday morning .
Q: Jed York said Thursday that you guys have tabled contract talks until the end of the season. Why?
HARBAUGH: Isn’t it refreshing? It has to be refreshing for you, refreshing for everyone in our building, refreshing for our fan base that the concentration will be on the 2014 season and our goals as a football team and achieving those goals. That’s the 49er way that I subscribe to. As I’ve stated on the record these past months, this past week, all focus is on the 2014 season and achieving our goals. Now, the organization and I are in lockstep and all energy and all focus is on achieving our goals.
Q: Jed also said you didn’t want to set the precedent of renegotiating a contract with two years left on it. Is that correct?
HARBAUGH: That’s another thing that I’m on the record for and I expressed that last summer when we talked about contracts. It’s my feeling. It’s a principal, a value. When you’re a leader of the team and you’re running in for a contract extension every couple of years, that has a tendency to have everybody else running for the water cooler.
