According to ESPNs Adam Shefter, San Francisco 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh is torn on whether to accept the lucrative offer set by Michigan.
A contract that is a reported six-year deal worth up to $49 million, it would easily make Harbaugh the highest paid coach in College football. A source close to Michigan said, “If he wants to stay in the NFL, who will pay him $8 million per year?” — an indication that the Wolverines are prepared to go hard after Harbaugh.
A hard decision for Harbaugh as he wants to remain an NFL coach, his agent David Dunn is doing his due diligence as he’s currently lining up potential suitors. As another source said, Harbaugh’s agent Dave Dunn “has a good sense of realistic NFL options already.”
According to Shefter, Harbaugh’s family is strongly pushing for coach to head to Ann Arbor. “His family and friends have voiced their opinions to Harbaugh and made it known that it would be an ideal match. Now, likely by the end of the month, Harbaugh must make the decision that will shape his professional and personal life for years to come.”
With Harbaugh’s future looming, it looks more and more like it won’t be in San Francisco.
