After weeks of speculation within the NFL ranks, the San Francisco 49ers and head coach Jim Harbaugh have agreed to part ways.
Following the 49ers' 20-17 victory over the Arizona Cardinals Sunday, 49ers CEO Jed York released a statement that read, in part, "Jim and I have come to the conclusion that it is in our mutual best interest to move in different directions."
The team also thanked Harbaugh for restoring a winning culture back to their football franchise.
