Jim Harbaugh Has No Interest In Leaving Michigan For NFL: “We Have Big Plans Here”
Last week, ESPN Packers reporter Rob Demovsky was on the Dan Patrick Show and stated how general manager Brian Gutekunst didn’t necessarily have the final call when it comes to making hires like most teams, but he will a say in the process of hiring a new head coach and that he reportedly was in love with Jim Harbaugh.
That love is reportedly not mutual because the Michigan Wolverines head coach told ESPN on Sunday that he has 0 plans of leaving the program to make a return to the NFL.
“This is a choreographed message that comes up at this time every year before signing day,” Harbaugh told ESPN this weekend. “It’s people spreading messages to further their own personal agenda.
“But I’m on record right here, right now: I’m not going anywhere. I’m staying at Michigan. We have big plans here, and there’s a lot we want to accomplish.”
Rumors began to swell following the dismissal of Mike McCarthy and Harbaugh is well aware of the talk surrounding him.
“I can’t be any more clear about this — it’s not true,” Harbaugh said. “I’m not going anywhere.”
Harbaugh is 38-13 in his four years at Michigan, including being 10-2 this season. As the head coach with the San Francisco 49ers, he went 44-19-1 in four seasons and coached San Francisco to an appearance in Super Bowl XLVII before returning to the college ranks in 2015 to coach at his alma mater Michigan.
