49ers Head Coach Jim Harbaugh Named NFL Coach Of The Year


San Francisco 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh did the unthinkable this season and turned the miserable 49ers squad into a NFC Championship team with a 13-3 record. Harbaugh used his talents to turn Alex Smith into a serviceable quarterback and brought a new sense of toughness to the team that has completely changed their mentality and prepped them for the future.

Congrats to Jim Harbaugh on an excellent season. He has the 49ers ready to return to glory in the not-so-distant future.
