Jim Harbaugh refutes Tim Brown's claim

Giving some life to a dead story, San Francisco Jim Harbaugh coach slammed former Oakland Raiders receiver Tim Brown for his January comments when he accused former Oakland coach Bill Callahan of “sabotaging” the team’s Super Bowl loss to Tampa Bay 10 years ago.

Harbaugh was then on Oakland’s staff and he said Friday Brown should be “ashamed” of the comments. Brown repeated the claims last month, but when Callahan harshly rebutted and demanded a retraction, Brown backed off.
