Who is the most hated coach in the National Football League?
If you’re asking Holden Kushner, the answer is Jim Harbaugh of the San Francisco 49ers, hands down.
“I legitimately hate this man,” Kushner said on 106.7 The Fan. “I think he is the worst person in sports. I think he is the most hated coach in sports. He by far, is the most hated man in the NFL according to me. He is the bane of the NFL’s existence. He is a good coach. He is just a whiny, horrible, horrible little man.”
So where does all of this disdain come from?
Kushner tells co-host Danny Rouhier it stems from countless tantrums, post-game complaints and of course the infamous handshaking incident with Jim Schwartz in 2011.
The pair nearly came to blows when Harbaugh over-zealously shook the hand of the then Detroit Lions head coach following the 49ers 25-19 win on the road. The two teams needed to be separated as Schwartz ran after Kushner’s “Public Enemy No. 1” to let him know what he thought about his post-game pleasantries.
To the radio host, those same shenanigans carried over to Super Bowl XLVII.
“Your brother [John Harbaugh] wants to give you a hug after the game. You give him a quick handshake and run off the field,” Kushner said with a sour taste in his mouth.
He further hammered home his point that Harbaugh’s antics are worse than those of New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick — an often brash man who is widely despised around the league.
The pièce de résistance of Kushner’s rant: “What a petulant, whiny bitch Jim Harbaugh is.”
Do you agree?
