Michigan Signs Jim Harbaugh to Contract Extension Through 2026

Jim Harbaugh is staying in Ann Arbor. 

After months of speculation over whether the Michigan head coach would make the move to the NFL or be fired, Harbaugh has reportedly agreed to a contract extension through 2026, 

Harbaugh came to Michigan with much fanfare and high expectations, but the enigmatic former 49ers coach has failed to live up to the hype as the savior of the Wolverines program. 

Harbaugh has gone 44-29 as the Wolverines coach — including going winless against Ohio State. Michigan finished their disappointing 2020 season at 2-4. 

After upsetting Clemson in the semifinals of the College Football Playoff, this is just another win for the Ohio State Buckeyes.
