I was not expecting to see this as I was sippin’ my coffee.

Jim Harbaugh, the nine-year head coach for the Michigan Wolverines college football program, was reportedly waiting for a new contract from the university which would have placed him on top of the Big 10. Michigan, however, has reportedly decided not to move forward with a new offer, according to a bombshell report from The Wall Street Journal.

The chatter regarding a new contract for Harbaugh has been going on in Ann Arbor for quite a while prior to the sign-stealing allegations that currently surround the team.

But now, the school has apparently  changed its mind about giving Harbaugh a new deal — and a lucrative one at that — especially with the massive buyout which would be involved. Michigan reportedly no longer has any plans to offer Harbaugh nor his agent a fresh contract, per the outlet.

Stemming from the COVID-19 pandemic, things have escalated for the Wolverines’ program, with multiple investigations currently ongoing by the NCAA — just read my recent blog about Michigan.

So I guess it’s safe to say Jim Harbaugh is headed back to the NFL? (RELATED: Northwestern State Shuts Down Football Season, Head Coach Resigns After Shooting Death Of Player)

Just wild, man.
