Richard Sherman on Jim Harbaugh: 'I don't deal with him'
Seahawks CB Richard Sherman played for 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh when both were at Stanford. Now they are division rivals.
Before cornerback Richard Sherman was drafted by the Seahawks, he played for Jim Harbaugh at Stanford. That's the same Jim Harbaugh who now coaches the 49ers, the Seahawks' sworn rival in the NFC West. (Also helping said rivalry: Seattle coach Pete Carroll, who has had his own beefs with Harbaugh.)
But after four years together, the two parted ways in 2011 when Sherman entered the NFL Draft.
"I don't have a relationship with him," the cornerback said during an appearance on NFL Network. "I don't try to go any route with him. I don't deal with him; he is not my coach. So I deal with what is going on in Seattle and I keep it there."
Sherman was much more measured in his response. "I think his comments are what they are," he said. "We are going to be the bigger team, the bigger players."
In case you're wondering, the Seahawks will host the 49ers in Week 2 of the regular season. Notify Siri accordingly.
