Things have gotten a bit dramatic in San Francisco in recent weeks.
Head coach Jim Harbaugh wanted out seemingly out of nowhere when the Cleveland Browns reportedly tried to trade for him a few weeks ago.
This sounds like much ado about little, though. Receiver Anquan Boldin recently threw a wet blanket on the whole idea that Harbaugh has created a rift in the locker room, per John Breech of CBS Sports.
"At this time of the year, people grab at whatever," Boldin said. "Football season is not here so they'll do whatever they can to write, and a lot of it is far-fetched, has nothing to do with football and the team."
"When I heard about it, I kind of laughed," Boldin said. "I don't think anybody in the locker room has an issue with Coach Harbaugh. The way our locker room is built, if anyone has a concern or wants to voice an opinion, they're more than welcome to."
Boldin also added that he has a 'pretty good relationship' with Harbaugh. As the long as the 49ers keep winning, everyone in the organization will likely keep a united front. However, if the team starts off cold in 2014, things could get really interesting, really fast.
Furthermore, Harbaugh himself that he isn't going anywhere, per Sports Illustrated's Michael Rosenberg.
"I see all these reports about how I want to be the highest-paid coach in football," Harbaugh said. "They presume I covet some kind of extension. I have never said to anybody that I want to be the highest-paid coach in football. I have never said that to anybody -- my wife, my brother, my dad. I make plenty of money.
"The other one is that I want more power. I have never said that, nor do I want any more power than I have. I coach the team. I've told my owner I don't want any more power. I want to coach the team. And I've never told anybody else otherwise."
