The San Francisco 49ers put contract talks with coach Jim Harbaugh on hold until the season ends.
Unable to reach a deal before the start of training camp, the two sides agreed to put off discussions.
"We actually just had this conversation (Wednesday)," 49ers owner Jed York said, according to CSN Bay Area. "Lots of people were talking to him about it. We just said, 'You know what, let's not do anything during the season. Let's sit down a week or so after the season is over and let everybody know we're not focused on anything that's off the field right now.'
"Jim and I will sit down a week or so after the season is over and we'll figure out where we go."
The 49ers are hoping to go to the Super Bowl. San Francisco reached the Super Bowl two years ago before falling to the Baltimore Ravens. Last year, the Niners were derailed by the Seattle Seahawks in their third straight trip to the NFC Championship game.
The 50-year-old Harbaugh is in the fourth year of a five-year contract he signed in January 2011. He is making $5 million a year.
"Like I've said publicly and very loudly in the past, I hope he has the utmost leverage when we sit down and talk about his contract at the end of the season. It's a good thing," York said. "It's an unbelievable problem to have."
