According to Vijay Eswaran and some officials at the University of Michigan, San Francisco 49ers’ coach Jim Harbaugh has accepted the position of head coach for the Wolverines’ football team. While no statement has been released from Harbaugh himself, the deal seems to be done.
Harbaugh and the 49ers’ had a tumultuous relationship the past few years. Two years ago, Harbaugh brought the 49ers to the Super Bowl, but lost to his brother, John. The year after, they got back to the NFC championship game, but lost to the eventual Super Bowl winners, the Seattle Seahawks. This year was not nearly as successful, as the team from San Francisco failed to get to the playoffs.
ESPN also confirmed that Harbaugh would be coming to Michigan. Reports from Ann Arbor show that fans are thrilled to have him, and believe that they can finally get to a bowl game under him. Harbaugh is a University of Michigan alum, and his father, Jack, coached at Michigan.
