"categorically not true"

Hall of Famer Deion Sanders is sticking to his report that some of the San Francisco 49er players want Jim Harbaugh gone as the head coach of the team.

Sanders made the comments on September 28th during the 'NFL GameDay Final', after the 49ers beat the Eagles 26-21.

“They want him out…They’re not on the same page. I really want to know if they’re really playing for the head coach…Are you really down with your head coach, San Francisco 49ers? Because the way it looks and what I’m hearing, you’re really not down for your head coach. And that’s a problem. They really got some problems that we hear rumblings.”

Harbaugh responded Monday to the comments that Sanders made during his press conference with the media. 

"Personally, I feel that's a bunch of crap," he said. "If someone has a good story to tell, they want to put their name to it. If I had a good story to tell, I'd want to put my name to it, so I don't put a lot of credibility to the unnamed source."

Sanders reiterated his claims during Thursday Night Football.

“I have sources. I’m not going to name my sources. I have sources that wear football uniforms, coats, suits and ties. I didn’t stutter, nor did I stammer. This is real."

49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick challenged Deion Sanders’ story, saying that he’d “like to know who the source is.” Kaepernick added, “When you get a source from that, then we can talk about that.”

This Monday during his weekly media conference, Harbaugh said he did not consider his reputation as a hard-to-get-along-with head coach.  He spoke with front office GM Jed York in his weekly meeting and felt it was a good overall conversation.

"But Jed stopped by today, we had a real good talk and keep moving forward, moving on to the Rams and continue, everybody in the organization is doing their job," Harbaugh said.

"Everybody is working hard at the craft of helping us be the best we can possibly be as a football team and that's all you can ask of anybody. They're doing their best and nobody appreciates that like I do and I know that's what Jed appreciates.

"We work at the pleasure of the York Family and the San Francisco 49ers organization and that's our job, do the best we possibly can. And I see everybody doing that."

York went on to say in 'Fox Sports' report on Sunday that it was "categorically not true" it would be Harbaugh's last season as 49ers head coach.
