The San Francisco 49ers parted ways with head coach Jim Harbaugh after the 2014 season due to repeated clashes with the front office, and according to Kyle McLorg, the breaking point in the relationship between Harbaugh and team CEO Jed York came when Harbaugh kicked York out of a "men only" meeting:
Source: midway thru 2014, York walked into meeting Harbaugh was holding w/ players, & Harbaugh told Jed that the meeting was for "men only"— Kyle McLorg (@Kyle_McLorgBASG) June 8, 2015
Certainly not the beginning of the animosity, but the source said it was a major breaking point in the Harbaugh-York relationship— Kyle McLorg (@Kyle_McLorgBASG) June 8, 2015
Harbaugh and York clashed repeatedly during their tenure together, and the animosity between the two has well documented - but this incident certainly gives us a whole new understanding of their relationship.
