The Cleveland Browns engaged in talks with the San Francisco 49ers to acquire Jim Harbaugh during their recent head coaching search, according to a report issued by ProFootballTalk.com. Per PFT, the proposed swap would have involved sending multiple draft choices to the 49ers. The deal fell through when Harbaugh ultimately decided to stay in San Francisco, according to multiple league sources. The Browns eventually hired Buffalo Bills defensive coordinator Mike Pettine to replace the dismissed Rob Chudzinski following an lengthy search that lasted nearly a month. Harbaugh, who led the 49ers to an NFC championship in 2012 and has guided the club to the playoffs in each of his three seasons at the helm, still has two years remaining on his original contract with the 49ers.
