"They can do that. That's the way the system works and it's fair. It's fair because I signed that contract. I had a choice not to. You look at every year and make that decision.
"It's something I definitely aspire to do again, but I also realize I'm part of something special here now. I am under contract. Things are in place in San Francisco, if you look at what (general manager) Trent Baalke has done in the personnel department and the shape the roster is in. I know how hard it is to create this chemistry and harmony that Harbaugh has created here. It's a winning environment and attitude. He's created a great environment to work in."
"The gist of the story is, a lot of people would love to be coaching for the 49ers right now. And it's inevitable. He (Harbaugh) wants a big (coaching) tree. This tree is going to go over the next few years. We don't need to rush it. We need to enjoy it."
"Nothing is better than this. I'd give up the years of advancement to be a part of this. There is so much that goes along with it. This is the highest high. This is why you coach."
Sounds to me like he's fairly content with where he's at. Maybe he just doesn't want to join the defensive dumpster fire down there and just wants to stick around with a HC that has a handle on how he wants to run his defense instead of wanting a system change with no clear candidate in mind?
Sorry gang, but there are rules in this here NFL. Your organization doesn't get to break them all.
The DBs (really just the CBs) are by far the worst position group on SF's D and let the rest of the team down. It's a shame you can't have him.
