Jim Harbaugh has spoken out against all the rumours of a 'rift' in the San Francisco 49ers organization and has reaffirmed his commitment to the team.

Harbaugh's future has seemingly been in question lately but his comments today have now ended all speculation.

When asked if he will be leaving San Francisco, Harbaugh replied: "Zero opportunity or chance of that in my mind."

It means that the 49ers will be keeping the coach who has taken them to two NFC Championship games and a Super Bowl in the last three years.

When also asked about the speculation of a breakdown in communication between Harbaugh and General Manager Trent Baalke, Harbaugh replied: "If you haven't had a brother, you probably don't understand the relationship between the GM and the head coach. 

"I have great respect for him. He works extremely hard at it and is very good at it"

Harbaugh stressed a sense of togetherness in the 49ers camp and even claimed that he was never given the opportunity to leave the 49ers despite the speculation of a possible trade deal with the Cleveland Browns earlier in the off-season.

Harbaugh's statements come on a day where the 49ers signed Wide Receiver Anquan Boldin to a two year contract extension and Boldin himself was defensive of Harbaugh's position.

Harbaugh finished by stating that: "I am too fond of my team, the players, the coaches. I really feel like we have one of the best, if not the best organizations in football."
