What Exactly Is Going On Within the San Francisco 49ers Front Office?

There’s been a lot of white noise surrounding the San Francisco 49ers, particularly the club’s savior of a head coach, Jim Harbaugh, and what his future holds. Rumors have been picking up over the last six months or so and the latest from Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk really started a fire.

But there is reason to believe that it is just the lead-up to something bigger, whatever it may be.

The half-truths and sensationalism in the most heavily trafficked reports have mostly served to set the stage for a drama, rather than work to find the truth. Now that a week has gone by since the original release, the Bay Area media has been able catch up and provide their individual takes on the organization over the last three years.

There has been plenty of information that has helped to paint a picture of how their hierarchy is built and the personalities that function within it. 

The purpose of this article and how it will differentiate itself from the others you've read this week is that it will outline the delivery of these rumors, while using clues and logic to come to an sensible conclusion of some sort. Most importantly, it is to present all the facts and let readers decide for themselves what is going on in Santa Clara. 

So without further ado, we pull the curtain up on the Jim Harbaugh drama at 4949 Centennial and explore what it might really mean.
