Michigan Rivals site reporting Harbaugh has signed the extension, it adds 5 years to his current deal, so he's set to remain in Ann Arbor for 6 more years. Yuck.

Michigan apparently targeting Baltimore Ravens LB Coach Mike McDonald to replace Don Brown as DC. LAZY hire. The guy is super young and unproven, and Jim must've just called his big brother and asked hey John, who should I hire? John said, hey I've got this LB coach, you can take him. Wtf? Harbaugh needs to get his ass on the phones and ring up Greg Mattison and Chris Partridge and BEG them both to come back. 

Ben McDaniels out as QB Coach. SCAPEGOAT. The guy was the QB coach for 1-2 years. The QB play has SUCKED every year Harbaugh has been here except for Jake Rudock Year 1- which looks more and more like a complete anomaly. The problem isn't the QB coach. The problem is HARBAUGH.

John must have not wanted to keep him.  Great endorsement!

unless the LB coach is a great guy and Jim can double his salary where John couldn't, even if he wanted to

He should re-sign and go f***k himself is what he should do. Warde Manuel has zero cajones and Michigan really doesn't care about winning. How do you keep a guy that can barely beat Michigan State and gets TROUNCED by Ohio State every single year, and a guy who takes ZERO responsibility for his bullshit offenses and keep firing and hiring QB coaches and OC's. Hey douchebag, the problem isn't any of those coaches- it's you. 

Michigan's offense is stone age. It's pathetic. It's a joke. They do nothing innovative or creative at all. Their offense is TERRIBLE. And it's been terrible since the day Harbaugh arrived. It's not all these other coaches. It's Harbaugh. Michigan needed to get someone who would bring their offense into the 21st century. That isn't Harbaugh- whose offensive mindset is stuck in the 1980s. 

They need someone who can modernize their passing game. They wasted DPJ & Nico Collins' talents- who both will do much better in the NFL than they ever did at Michigan imo. Right now they have some very talented young WR's- and they need someone who can develop them and maximize them. Conrelius Johnson, AJ Henning, Roman Wilson, and Xavier Worthy are all super talented young WRs. Michigan needs someone who can actually develop a passing game that will utilize them. That someone is NOT Jim Harbaugh. 

They just signed their highest rated QB recruit (JJ McCarthy) since 2007 when they landed Ryan Mallett. Harbaugh is not the guy to mold him. McCarthy's career will end in disaster- see; Shea Patterson- an even higher ranked QB recruit than Mallett or McCarthy who transferred into Michigan- and just went undrafted after playing for Harbaugh.

It's not the players. It's not this position coach or that position coach. It's Jim Harbaugh. THAT is the problem. No way anyone convinces me that Shea goes undrafted had he transferred to play for Lincoln Riley or Ryan Day. Dwayne Haskins can't read a zone blitz defense if his life depended on it- and Ryan Day made him a 1st round pick. Jalen Hurts can't throw the damn football and Lincoln Riley turned him into a 2nd round pick. 

Coaching matters. And Jim Harbaugh is a terrible offensive coach. He works best on a team that has a great run game, a QB that is limited and doesn't turn it over and with a great defense backing him up. This style doesn't win anymore in college. Period. It's out-dated. Still works in the NFL. Will never work in college again. In college game- you need tempo, high-flying offense, lots of yards, and LOTS OF POINTS to win. Alabama, LSU, Ohio State, and Clemson showing that year after year after year.

He could have ghost written for himself -  "Hey look what this guy on CFB51 is spouting in the Michigan Off-Season Thread - I wholeheartedly agree"

Good, financially sensible news from Outkick:

“...reports are that Harbaugh is about to sign a five-year contract extension to keep coaching the Wolverines for $4 million a year. When he was hired six years ago, he got $8 million a year. The price tag was part of the sales pitch to the world. Now, he’ll be the 10th highest paid coach in the Big Ten. They even reduced his buyout, should Michigan decide to fire him.”

I maybe wrong but the NFL didn't come flocking and M's Admns couldn't make up their fooking minds(or had no takers).Mabe Jim gets 4 mill next year then they can him - saving 3 mil off the original contract.I'd be shocked if any one of note comes after JH after his time in AA is thru.Jim hardly needs the coin

I'd like to know how much of his contract is guaranteed, e.g., how much he's due if he's fired after next year or the year after.

Maybe the money isn't an issue for UM.
