Sherman got “nothing back” from Harbaugh after game.
Seattle Seahawks star Richard Sherman has revealed that he was snubbed by San Francisco 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh after their 29-3 win on Sunday night.
The cornerback played four seasons with Harbaugh during their days at Stanford, but according to Sherman their relationship has since deteriorated.
It is understood that Harbaugh made no effort to improve relations after Sunday night’s game, where Sherman claims that he was snubbed by his former coach.
“I told him good job, good game, but he didn’t give me nothing back,” Sherman told NFL Network according to ESPN. “I guess sportsmanship doesn’t go both ways.”
However, Harbaugh had a different account of events after he was asked by reporters what he had said to Sherman when the two spoke on the field after the game.
“I didn’t realize it was him until he was moving in the other direction,” Harbaugh said, according to NFL.com.
“He came up and patted me on the back, and I congratulated him, and same with Doug Baldwin. I congratulate the Seahawks. They played a hell of a game.”
Sherman played a key role in shutting the 49ers’ offense down and leading his team to a win with one of the Seahawks’ three interceptions of 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick. He was clearly fired up after the game as he went on to slam those that doubted Seattle.
However, he appeared to want to draw a line under matters between him and Harbaugh when he was asked again on Monday about the situation.
The 25-year-old insisted that both men are in different cities, are part of good football teams and “it is what it is”.
