And so it looks like the 2014 Coaching merry-go-round has finally answered the remaining mystery of who would wind up coaching the Michigan Carcajous if you believe ESPN. Once again citing unnamed sources, ESPN.com has stated that they believe the next coach of the Wolverines will be San Francisco 49ers head coach Michigan Man Jim Harbaugh.
Last they heard, Harbaugh was heading to Ann Arbor for an announcement on Tuesday. Sounds pretty solid.
Others insisted that Harbaugh has no deal with Michigan at this time, although Michigan officials are presently in the Bay Area waiting to meet with Harbaugh, as his 49ers are in the process of losing to the Arizona Cardinals for what will be their ninth loss of the year and their fifth at home if it happens. They currently trail 17-13. I’d say Harbaugh out to get out-of-town quick after this dog of a season.
He’s supposed to meet with 49ers front office personnel after the game. Seems like they should be happy to kiss his ass goodbye. Harbaugh has a way of pissing people off wherever he goes, anyway. He has one year left on a $25 million deal with the Niners.
The Jets and the Bears might be looking his way. That should provide some competition to pump up an offer by the Carcajous.
