On the day that he signed a new two year extension with the San Francisco 49ers, Wide Receiver Anquan Boldin has come out and defended his coach Jim Harbaugh.

Harbaugh has been in the news lately because sources close to the organization have claimed that not only does he not get along with other members of the coaching staff, he has now started to lose touch with the players.

But Boldin came rushing to the defense of his coach today saying that: "He's a guy I had a real good relationship with.

"And I just like his demeanor, the way he approaches the game. He's a guy that wants to win."

Harbaugh's desire to win has been tested over recent seasons with San Francisco - during his three years in charge they have made it to two NFC Championship games and one Super Bowl but have lost on the big stage more than they have won.

Details of Harbaugh's tough stance on coaching have made headlines almost everyday this week but Boldin has claimed that he was the reason he returned to California.

Boldin's future could have been very different had Harbough been successful scouted by the Cleveland Browns who were supposedly interested in the former Stanford coach earlier in the off-season.

It has been said that Harbaugh has promised to present a more gentle and kinder persona and that it seems to be holding up but fans are left questioning for how long will it last and how damaging could it be for their upcoming season?
