Jim Harbaugh, Jim Schwartz Tussle After San Francisco 49ers Defeat Detroit Lions

When the San Francisco 49ers saw the clock reach zero on Sunday afternoon for a victory over the Detroit Lions, head coach Jim Harbaugh enjoyed an exuberant celebration that included dancing and jumping across the middle of the field. It ended with a hand shake, more of a slap, with Lions head coach Jim Schwartz, which didn't sit well with the coach. That led Schwartz to run after Harbaugh once he left the immediate area. Schwartz had to be held back to end the confrontation.

After the game, Harbaugh told reporters that he gave Schwartz "too hard" of a handshake, but Schwartz is also known for his excessive celebrations. According to Schwartz, Harbaugh shoved him out of the way and cursed at him, but there's no way to verify the validity of his comment.

The NFL will certainly look into this situation and possibly fine Schwartz for the altercation, but this would likely be a far bigger story if it happened between two players.
