Former San Francisco 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh may still have an axe to grind with his former NFL team.
Harbaugh was sensationally forced out of the 49ers in a bitter parting of ways. Although the 49ers and Harbaugh claim to have separated by mutual consent, it's common knowledge that people in high places at the storied franchise had an intense dislike for the way Harbaugh went about his coaching business, particularly off the field.
And just because the 49ers have now got rid of one of their most successful coaches, don't think Harbaugh has stopped annoying the top brass at the 49ers. On Wednesday, the now Michigan college football head coach went about congratulating pretty much every coaching hire in the NFL.
However, Harbaugh curiously left out the hires the 49ers made and particularly the one which saw former defensive-line coach Jim Tomsula promoted to head coach.

It's quite interesting that he still congratulates former 49ers defensive coordinator Vic Fangio, with his tenure in San Francisco becoming untenable after the promotion of a coach below him.
Granted, Harbaugh also missed out the hires by New York Jets and Denver Broncos of Todd Bowles and Gary Kubiak respectively, but it's pretty obvious he made a conscious effort to not include Tomsula and the 49ers in his tweet.
Left on bad terms
This has to go down as further proof that the 49ers and Harbaugh's parting of ways was not as mutual as the Niners would have us believe.
It's certainly a case of sour grapes from Harbaugh, but maybe he has a right to still be bitter about the way things ended for him in San Francisco. However, there are two sides to every story and it's likely that Harbaugh was a nightmare to work with.
Either way, it would be best for Harbaugh to move on and focus on college football matters, as he seems to be doing somewhat when you take a look at the amount of high school football players he's following on Twitter. Life in Harbaugh land is never dull that's for sure.
