A.J. Jenkins is no longer with the San Francisco 49ers, and his ex coach seems to be blame the media for some of that.

Jim Harbaugh would routinely blast the media for the criticism levied at Jenkins when he was not performing well for the team.

Harbaugh told CSN Bay Area that he was not in support of the media bullying a player for not producing.

“I know a lot of people made sport of AJ and Jonathan and my comments and that type of thing,” he said Wednesday, per Matt Maiocco of CSNBayArea.com. “And I really feel the same as I did a year ago when I made those comments. I don’t think it’s fair to bully or label a young player. I fully understand people are entitled to their opinion and their perspective, however, I refer the criticism — or appreciate — if the criticism is directed toward me. I’m responsible and I certainly accept it.”

Harbaugh took responsibility for having part in drafting Jenkins.

“I’m responsible. I’m responsible for helping pick the draft picks and fully responsible for coaching the players up,” he said. “So I willingly accept those responsibilities.”
