Richard Sherman says 49ers hatred ended when he put Jim Harbaugh ‘out of the league’

MIAMI — The feud between Richard Sherman and Jim Harbaugh isn’t coming to a close anytime soon.

“There is nothing to mend,” Sherman said. “The bridge was burned down, torn down and built another bridge at another place. But the bridge in this particular relationship will never be rebuilt. I don’t think he is interested in it, and I’m not interested in it.”

According to Phil Barber of the Santa Rosa Press Democrat, Sherman said his goal was to get Harbaugh out of the league, which was successful.

“I wanted to put him out of the league,” Sherman said. “And once I got that done, I had no animosity towards the 49ers organization.”

Sherman and Harbaugh had frequent disagreements when Harbaugh coached Sherman at Stanford, and at one point suggested that Sherman transfer from Stanford. After that beef came to a boil, Harbaugh told Sherman he’d never play offense again, and Sherman went from playing wide receiver and cornerback to playing solely corner, where he used his knowledge of the offense to get under Harbaugh’s skin.
