Jim Harbaugh led the 49ers to three consecutive NFC Championship Games and an appearance in Super Bowl XLVII but he thinks he deserves another award: an endurance medal.

Harbaugh was on the Mercury News‘ Tim Kawakami’s podcast Thursday and didn’t mince words when talking about the 49ers current situation. He said, “I think we did set a record for coaching there the longest under the present ownership. I take pride in that. Maybe there should be an endurance medal, a courage medal, for that.”

Harbaugh coached the 49ers for four seasons, which was the longest stint as head coach for the 49ers since Steve Mariucci coached from 1997-2002, went 49-22-1 in his four seasons with San Francisco.

Since Harbaugh mutually parted ways with the 49ers in 2014, San Francisco has had three different head coaches going a combined 7-25.

    It wasn’t you coach, it was the spoiled brat who runs the team. He let you go because he wanted a “Super Bowl” win. Well, it still hasn’t happened, how about it “York the Dork”? You did the best you could considering you had that idiot mounting pressure on you, the way I see it, it’ll be a long time coming. You were lucky, because you didn’t have to deal with the Krapernick fiasco, you did well coach, we knew it.
