STANFORD, Calif. (AP) - San Francisco 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh is ready for a busy week ahead with the start of free agency and is moving forward from the recent news that the Cleveland Browns inquired about trading for him.

Harbaugh, attending the Utah-Stanford men's basketball game Saturday at Maples Pavilion with 5-year-old daughter Addison, says he is ''great with a capital `G.''' He has said he is committed to staying put with the 49ers, who lost 23-17 in the NFC championship game to NFC West rival and eventual Super Bowl champion Seattle. That was a year after the 49ers lost 34-31 in the Super Bowl against Harbaugh's coaching big brother, John.

Harbaugh has completed the first three seasons of a $25 million, five-year deal signed in January 2011.
