Head coach Jim Harbaugh wants to lead the 49ers to a Super Bowl championship

The San Francisco 49ers surprised the NFL last year when they went 13-3 in the regular season and came within a couple of botched punts from going to the Super Bowl. Head coach Jim Harbaugh will not allow the 49ers to rest on their laurels and he has the team poised for another excellent season.
