Report: Michigan Offers Jim Harbaugh 6-Year, $48M Deal

Ian Rapoport is reporting that the University of Michigan has made an offer to Jim Harbaugh for six-years, $48 million.

Rapoport says Harbaugh initially rebuffed the Wolverines.

A week ago Harbaugh indicated to UM officials that he preferred to stay in the NFL, according to Rapoport. Michigan’s search has been deliberate since the Wolverines fired Brady Hoke and speculation has been that UM is waiting on Harbaugh’s season with the 49ers to end. With the 49ers out of the playoff picture and reports of discord between Harbaugh and the club, the Wolverines could be the right move at the right time for the former Michigan quarterback.

If he accepts, Harbaugh would become the highest paid coach in college football.
