Jim Harbaugh: ‘I don’t worry about my future’

San Francisco 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh spoke to the media for the first time since Thursday’s 19-3 home loss to the Seahawks and answered questions about his job security.

“I really, I don’t worry about my future,” he said Monday in his weekly media conference. “I haven’t participated in any of that speculation. I just, I think I have a recessive gene for worrying about my own future.”

Harbaugh’s job has been speculated about for weeks, and ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported Monday that the Raiders and Jets both plan to inquire about Harbaugh’s availability in a potential trade.

Here’s more from Harbaugh’s press conference Monday, via ESPN:

It was CEO Jed York who tweeted out an apology in the wake of last week’s embarrassing defeat, not Harbaugh. And it was general manager Trent Baalke who had to apologize for his college-age daughter’s tweet saying offensive coordinator Greg Roman should be fired.

Harbaugh, meanwhile, would not say if he has spoken with York about the social media missive.

“To me, that’s not significant,” said Harbaugh, who was not wearing his customary 49ers cap. “What’s significant is we move on without excuse and get it right. Make it right. That’s our jobs.”

After being asked about York a few more times, a miffed Harbaugh said, “I kind of think some of these questions are for your own pleasure.”
