SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — San Francisco 49ers CEO Jed York denied his team nearly traded coach Jim Harbaugh to the Cleveland Browns last month for draft picks.

York shot down a report Friday by Pro Football Talk, posting on Twitter: "Is this on the record? Report isn't true." Pro Football Talk reported that a deal was in place that would have sent Harbaugh to coach Cleveland, but he opted to stay put. The 50-year-old Harbaugh just completed his third season of a $25 million, five-year contract and declined to address the subject of an extension or any scheduled talks after the season with York, who had said he hoped to meet with the coach.

The 49ers (14-5) lost to the NFC West rival and eventual Super Bowl champion Seahawks in the NFC championship game, 23-17.

A few days after San Francisco's season, Cleveland hired Bills defensive coordinator Mike Pettine to replace Rob Chudzinski, who was fired after going 4-12 his first year. It was the team's sixth straight season with at least 11 losses.

Detroit to file bankruptcy restructuring plan

DETROIT (AP) — The plan of adjustment for Detroit's bankruptcy is expected to be filed days before a court-imposed deadline.

A spokesman for state-appointed emergency manager Kevyn Orr says the plan will be filed Friday. Federal Judge Steven Rhodes set March 1 as the deadline.

The plan will spell out how pensioners, retirees, banks, bond insurers and other creditors will fare under Orr's efforts to trim down Detroit's $18 billion debt load.

A draft given last month to creditors showed retirees and pensioners getting $4.3 billion in payments and bondholders about $1.1 billion over the next 40 years, leaving the city with a nearly $336 million surplus.

The plan will be accompanied by a disclosure statement, which outlines the level of reinvestment in Detroit, including municipal services, planned during the next 10 years.

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Strong investment returns last year have boosted the long-term financial stability of Ohio's public pension funds serving roughly 1.7 million people.

The Dayton Daily News (http://bit.ly/1fh63tL ) reports the largest of the five funds had a return of 13.9 percent. That gave the Ohio Public Employees Retirement System a record $88.6 billion in assets.

Its director says state pension law changes in 2012 also bolstered the system's financial position.

The Ohio Police & Fire Fund's portfolio was worth $14.1 billion after a 16.5 percent return. The State Teachers Retirement System of Ohio made 17.4 percent, hitting $72.3 billion in assets. The School Employees Retirement System of Ohio logged $21.1 billion after a 16.1 percent return.
