Oddsmaker: 12-1 odds Harbaugh won't be UM's coach in 2018

The Detroit News
Entering Saturday's game, Jim Harbaugh has a 26-8 record as Michigan's coach.

Will Jim Harbaugh stay or will he go?

Well, it depends on whom you ask.

And according to the oddsmakers at SportsBettingDime.com, the odds are 12-1 that Harbaugh won't be Michigan's coach when the Wolverines start the 2018 season.

Harbaugh is one of three Big Ten coaches to make the list for the sports betting site's end-of-season college football props. Nebraska's Mike Riley has 2-1 odds and Illinois' Lovie Smith is listed at 8-1.

Tennessee's Butch Jones tops the list at 1-9, followed by Arkansas' Bret Bielema 2-1 and Riley.

Harbaugh, in his third season with Michigan, has guided the Wolverines to consecutive 10-3 seasons his first two years, including a Citrus Bowl win over Florida in 2015. However, he has drawn criticism for his 1-4 record against rivals Ohio State and Michigan State.

The Wolverines (6-2, 3-2 Big Ten) will host Minnesota Saturday at 7:30 p.m. before closing out the regular season with games against Maryland, Wisconsin and Ohio State.
