Jim Harbaugh Says He Isn’t Leaving Michigan


When Los Angeles Rams head coach Jeff Fisher was fired on Monday afternoon, the first name mentioned as a possible successor is former San Francisco 49ers and current Michigan Wolverines head coach Jim Harbaugh.

Whereas it doesn’t seem like this is a great job opening outside of the potential money (Harbaugh already makes $9 million per year), there are only 32 NFL jobs and when a team comes calling most coaches will at the very least listen.

Harbaugh told his team in no uncertain terms that he plans on staying at Michigan.

As per usual, Harbaugh was over the top in his “lies made up by our enemies” response, and there’s nothing wrong with that because that’s who he is.

If the Indianapolis Colts job opens up and Harbaugh has the chance to once again coach Andrew Luck, that will be a much tougher gig to turn down.
