Dude has a horrible year and gets a 6 year extension, wtf!?
Without seeing the contract details, my assumption is that, no matter how they’re billing it in the press, this is basically an incentive-laden one-year “prove it” contract. Harbaugh will get another season to try to fix the mess he’s created. (And as disgusted as I was with how we looked this year, he’s probably earned that.) If they look like garbage again, I assume it will be a fairly cheap contract to get out of.
As a Spartan fan I approve of this!!!
Yeah…and I think that’s fair…unless you can get Dabo or something crazy like that.
I knew it. Cowards. I’ll bet it was big money UM alumni who convinced them to cancel the UM / OSU game as there would have been too much pressure to fire Captain Comeback if they put 70 on him.
As a Lions fan, am I wrong to feel like we dodged a bullet?
So I’m not a Michigan fan that would know about a potential search at all, but I saw Michigan having the same kind of problem Auburn did with their search. Who else were they going to hire?
I don’t think you’re wrong to think that. As a Lions fan and a Rutgers fan, this is good news!
I don’t actually think Harbaugh is going to turn this thing around. At some point, UM is going to have to roll the dice on a younger, hungrier up and coming coach who looks to be able to actually, like, coach. But I can understand why they wouldn’t cut bait in the middle of a bizarre COVID year. And when they do cut bait, I’d rather them do it with enough lead time to minimize the damage to recruiting, which was already damaged enough.
IOWA would have kicked the shit out of them this year, and I don’t see where next year will be much different so…GREAT!
I guess he sold them on the fact that they finally didn’t lose to Ohio State this year!
Calling in sick has its perks.
First year they haven’t lost to OSU in a long time, must be why they extended him!
Cheap buyout, that’s the only number that matters. Not a fan of the move though.
yeah he goes back to Michigan and takes a pay cut doing that, instead of being GM /HC here…
Another mistake by the UofM
Meanwhile in East Lansing
