Jim Harbaugh is new Niners coach

8 01 2011

First week on the job as the new Sports Reporter at the San Mateo Daily Journal and we get a HUGE local story. Jim Harbaugh, who’s had success coaching at different stops during his post NFL days, turned down an offer by the Miami Dolphins, to become the new head coach of the San Francisco 49ers. The story broke midday on Friday and the cyber-world went crazy. I on the other hand, got to thinking of how we should play this on the sports page. Below is what I came up with.

Photos are from Reuters. I had to stretch it a bit to make it fit in the space we had. The timeline was a nice touch I thought. It was a crazy couple weeks locally and I felt the package could use something like that. Anyway, good luck to Harbaugh. The expectations here in the Bay Area couldn’t be higher.
