The University of Michigan’s Wolverines were absolutely annihilated by the University of Wisconsin Badgers last weekend and it was such an embarrassing moment there’s no question there are a lot of doubts about head coach Jim Harbaugh’s abilities.
The university had such high hopes for the head coach because he formerly took the San Francisco 49ers to the Super Bowl. But most thought they would have at least made it to the National Championship; it hasn’t worked out that way.
Michigan might just fire head coach Jim Harbaugh so here are five potential landing spots.
The Wisconsin Badgers blew out Head coach of University of Michigan, Jim Harbaugh, on Saturday and at one point the score was 28-0. Now, Harbaugh is not a bad coach at all but the expectations were incredibly high when he first took over. Those days are long gone, though, and the future looks bleak.
The Vegas odds are high. Most analysts think it’s time for him to go. Harbaugh will likely be fired sometime in the near future.
So here are five landing spots for Jim Harbaugh:
University of Georgia
Georgia’s population, especially in and around Atlanta, has been growing for years, and this ever-growing talent base is chock-full of kids who all want to play for the Bulldogs. Tap in living in Athens, one of the most beautiful small cities in the South, and you’ve got a job a ton of people would run through fire for and Jim Harbaugh could be that guy.
The University of Michigan’s talent pool doesn’t even come close to Georgia’s so he may have a lot more to work with here. It’s a great storied program that hasn’t lived up to expectations for a long time now.
It’s out in the middle of nowhere in the Mid-west but it’s one of the top three best college programs in the history of University football. In the 1990s, Nebraska was an absolute dynasty, but since then the program has been an embarrassment.
Harbaugh is the kind of guy who would probably love the Mid-west. He’s a khaki-wearing all-work-and-no-play kind of couch anyway. Plus he wouldn’t have to deal with the other conferences in Nebraska.
Everybody knows the Miami Dolphins are tanking right now. They just traded away their star first-round safety, Minkah Fitzpatrick, to the Pittsburgh Steelers and the front office is giving every signal they either want Tua Tagovaiola or Trevor Lawrence.
That means Harbaugh would be primed for a great young quarterback with a slew of other picks to build his dynasty. Also, he may land a massive contract similar to Jon Gruden’s who received a $10 million 10-year contract.
Why not? The Baltimore Ravens are good right now which means head coach John Harbaugh, isn’t going anywhere anytime soon. That doesn’t mean they wouldn’t be the best duo brothers dynamic on a coaching staff.
To that point, if that happens, they may not be the only duo brothers on a coaching staff next season because the Washington Redskins will likely fire Jay Gruden and he’ll be looking for a job next season. Jon Gruden might hire his brother immediately too.
Or, maybe Harbaugh will hang up his khaki pants and retire for good if Michigan fires him. That doesn’t seem like it’s in his DNA though.
