49ers players and fans react to the end of the Jim Harbaugh era

Jim Harbaugh is officially done in San Francisco. Players, media and fans alike are pouring out their feelings.

Jim Harbaugh and the San Francisco 49ers are going their separate ways. The 49ers appear to want a young offensive mind who will probably be much easier to appease than Harbaugh was. Harbaugh should be touching down in Michigan soon enough.

His departure has sparked a wide range of emotions. Players shared positive feelings about their former head coach, but 49ers fans were more bittersweet. Below is a sampling of some of those thoughts. There are sure to be many more in the coming hours and days.

I will always have a great deal of respect for Coach Harbaugh. Recruited me to Stanford & helped save my NFL career

If I learned anything from Harbaugh’s time with Stanford, it’s that Ohio State and Urban Meyer should watch out. He comes at the king.

I’m still not getting the people that put this all the way on the 49ers’ front office. I think Harbaugh wanted out for a ton of reasons.
