Jim Harbaugh

There is no question Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh has been fully embraced by Wolverines’ rabid fan base and also is being well-compensated by his alma mater.

There also is no question that many observers outside the program think Harbaugh will have a short stay in Ann Arbor coaching the Wolverines, because he will have the itch to return to the NFL.

During his appearance Wednesday on Sirius XM College Sports, he was asked if he “legitimately” sees himself “coaching Michigan forever, that being the ultimate job for you 20-25 years from now. Do you think that way?”

Harbaugh didn’t hesitate.

“Yeah, I think that way,” Harbaugh said.

“And I think, God willing and the creek don’t rise, that will happen. I love coaching, I love football, I love the University of Michigan and you hope to go as long as you can where you’re still doing it by example, not just through anecdote, and you’re still able to do that as long as the good Lord will allow you to do it.”
