Jim Harbaugh was questioned by the media about his future in football on Thursday afternoon. There have been several rumors of him being linked to the head coaching job with the Texas Longhorns.

He was asked if he wanted to stay with the 49ers for years to come. His answer was a firm "absolutely" which came with confidence. While there have been talks about him wanting more control in a new contract, Harbaugh said his relationship with general manager Trent Baalke is fine.

"[My relationship] with Baalke is good," Harbaugh said. "It's the 49er way and about the team. Everybody does a little and it adds up to being a lot." There's nobody above, nobody more important, nobody less important and hundreds in this organization. We have a role and we contribute to the best of our ability. We win as a team. That's how we do it."

When hired in 2011, Harbaugh signed five-year contract that pays $5 million per year after he came off a double digit win season and Orange Bowl win at Stanford. He turned down an extension after last year, which led to speculation that all options are open.

The Texas Longhorns are searching for a new head coach after Mack Brown stepped down last week after 16 seasons with the university. On Thursday, Harbaugh said that the rumors are 'hearsay' citing that there isn't any evidence that he is interested in the Texas job. The head coach warned everyone about unnamed sources.
