Just two days after parting ways with the San Francisco 49ers, former Wolverines quarterback Jim Harbaugh is rejoining his alma mater as head coach.
If there was any question about the split, Jim Harbaugh appears to already be over his breakup with the 49ers. Back in the Bay Area, most of the ire is directed at CEO Jed York, and GM Trent Baalke.
The news that 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh is indeed leaving after all the speculation hit home today for the players in the locker room, especially quarterback Colin Kaepernick who shared his feelings on social media.
Apparently even the University of Michigan is calling the hiring of Jim Harbaugh as the next coach of the Wolverines as a done deal.
Harbaugh said after a 20-17 victory against playoff-bound Arizona on Sunday that he is leaving the 49ers, but did not say if he was resigning or was fired.
If Jim Harbaugh does take the coaching position in Michigan, he will be the highest paid college coach.
Another day, another report that Jim Harbaugh will no longer be the head coach of the San Francisco 49ers.
San Francisco 49er Head Coach Jim Harbaugh has been offered a $48 million contract to become the new head coach of the Michigan Wolverines, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL.com.
Since we are upon our great day of gratitude, a pretext for gorging on poultry and then taking our swollen torsos to the nearest television for some football, let’s look to sports for reasons to give thanks.
49ers legend Jerry Rice and others have recently said they think Jim Harbaugh’s tenure with the 49ers will be over at season’s end, no matter how far the team goes. Where will he find his next gig? If the voters of Michigan have anything to say about it, the former University of Michigan quarterback will be taking up residence in the statehouse.
