Jim Harbaugh reportedly heading to Michigan (Dr. Saturday)
12/28/2014 - San Francisco 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh will reportedly be the next coach of the Michigan Wolverines. According to CSN Bay Area , Harbaugh has agreed to be Michigan's coach. Confirmed: Harbaugh to Michigan! Press Conference Tues in Ann Arbor — Dave Feldman (@FeldyCSN) December 28, 2014 Harbaugh's move to Michigan was first tweeted by John U. Bacon on Saturday night. Bacon, a professor at Michigan, is the author of "Fourth and Long," a book about college football. I just got off the phone with more sources tonight. It's done. Jim Harbaugh is coming to Michigan - and his friends are flying in Monday. — John U. Bacon (@Johnubacon) December 28, 2014 How do I know this? From his friends who are flying in. — John U. Bacon (@Johnubacon) December 28, 2014 Michigan officials were in the San Francisco Bay Area over the weekend to meet with Harbaugh in the hopes of securing his services as the Wolverines' next head coach. The 49ers play the Arizona cardinals on Sunday. No contract numbers have been reported along with Harbaugh's reported agreement, but a previous report said that Harbaugh had been offered nearly $50 million for six years at Michigan. The figure, if it becomes his contract, would make him the highest paid coach in the NFL and college football. Harbaugh has been the coach of the 49ers for four seasons. He would replace Brady Hoke at Michigan, who was fired after the end of the 2014 season following Michigan's 5-7 record. When Hoke was hired at Michigan four years ago, Harbaugh was mentioned as a candidate. Hoke's record in his four seasons at Michigan was 31-20. Harbaugh was 29-21 in four years at Stanford before taking the 49ers job. - - - - - - - Nick Bromberg is the assistant editor of Dr. Saturday on Yahoo Sports. Have a tip?

Michigan officials reportedly in San Francisco area to meet with Jim Harbaugh (Dr. Saturday)
12/26/2014 - As San Francisco 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh's future remains clouded and Michigan doesn't have a coach for 2015, the Wolverines are reportedly scheduled to speak with him over the weekend. Fox Sports' Bruce Feldman reported Friday night that Michigan officials would be in the Bay area and NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported that Michigan officials will meet with Harbaugh. Per The Wolverine, Michigan officials are there "with the intention of closing the deal" after San Francisco plays Arizona on Sunday. #Michigan brass & search firm will be up in the Bay Area this weekend as part of the Jim Harbaugh pursuit, per source. — Bruce Feldman (@BruceFeldmanCFB) December 27, 2014 Michigan AD Jim Hackett & U-M officials will be in the Bay Area this weekend to speak with Jim Harbaugh. So will #Raiders officials #GameOn — Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) December 27, 2014 Before Jim Harbaugh meets with #Michigan or #Raiders , the plan is to handle his #49ers commitments first. But both sides will be ready. — Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) December 27, 2014 The longer that Michigan's coaching search has gone and the more that Harbaugh's tenure in San Francisco looks like it will end after the game against the Cardinals, the two parties have seemed like a natural fit. Harbaugh is a former Michigan quarterback. And the interest in Harbaugh is, of course, not new. Rapoport reported previously that there was a six-year $49 million contract offer made to Harbaugh by the Wolverines. The contract would be the most for any football coach in either the NFL or college ranks. Any contact with Harbaugh by the Raiders would need to be cleared to avoid any tampering possibilities as long as he's under contract with the 49ers. Before moving to the 49ers, where he's finishing his fourth season, Harbaugh was the coach at Stanford for four seasons.

Fan makes Jim Harbaugh to Michigan video with Matthew McConaughey voice over (Video) (Dr. Saturday)
12/18/2014 - A reported six-year, $48 million contract offer from Michigan to Jim Harbaugh has only increased the speculation that links the current 49ers coach to the vacant coaching position at his alma mater. San Francisco still has two games left on its schedule, so the rumors will continue to swirl. Though it may be stressful for Michigan fans, y ou know the internet is going to have fun with the process. Here’s a great example of that. This video, created by @MaizeBlueNation matches footage from Harbaugh’s playing days as the Wolverines’ quarterback over the audio from one of those recent Lincoln commercials with Matthew McConaughey .

Michigan reportedly has offered Jim Harbaugh $8 million a year (Dr. Saturday)
12/17/2014 - Could the Michigan Wolverines be floating an offer to Jim Harbaugh to make him the highest-paid coach in college football? According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, the Wolverines are offering the current San Francisco 49ers coach and former Michigan quarterback a $48-million deal over six seasons. Sources: #Michigan has made another run at Jim Harbaugh after he initially rebuffed the school. U-M has made an offer of 6 years, $48M. Wow. — Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) December 17, 2014 The $8 million per year average would be more than $800,000 higher than the total compensation Alabama's Nick Saban received in 2014. Saban's salary currently makes him the highest-paid coach in college football. The salary compares well to NFL coaching pay too. New Orleans Saints coach Sean Payton is the highest-paid coach in the league at $8 million a year. As Harbaugh's time with the 49ers is possibly coming to an end after the season based on a multitude of reports , Michigan has been patient with its coaching search. While Nebraska, Wisconsin, Oregon State and others have made quick moves to hire coaches, Michigan has bided its time. And the longer that Michigan does so, the more it looks like Harbaugh could be the team's target. Before moving to the 49ers in 2011, Harbaugh coached at Stanford for four seasons after coaching at the University of San Diego for three. He was a candidate to coach at Kansas in 2009, but the Jayhawks went with Turner Gill. In his final season at Stanford, the Cardinal won the Orange Bowl.

12/10/2014 - Was Duke coach David Cutcliffe approached by Michigan about the Wolverines' coaching job? According to's Gil Brandt, Cutcliffe was offered the job by Michigan and turned it down. Was told tonight #Michigan officials offered David Cutcliffe their job but the #Duke coach turned it down. Times sure have changed. — Gil Brandt (@Gil_Brandt) December 10, 2014 Cutcliffe, 60, has been at Duke since 2008. After four losing seasons, Cutcliffe's Blue Devils are heading to a third-straight bowl game in 2014 in the Sun Bowl against Arizona State. Last year's Duke team entered the ACC Championship Game at 10-2 before losing to Florida State and then to Texas A&M in the Peach Bowl. Before coaching at Duke, Cutcliffe was the head coach at Ole Miss from 1999-2004. He coached Eli Manning at Ole Miss and was Tennessee's offensive coordinator when Peyton Manning played with the Volunteers. If Cutcliffe did spurn the Wolverines, it's possible he simply didn't want to build another program. And yes, Wolverines, there is some building necessary after the last two years of Brady Hoke's reign. Hoke and Michigan parted ways last week. Per , the search firm Michigan has hired for the coaching search reached out to LSU coach Les Miles to "gauge his interest." However, Miles isn't atop the list for the Wolverines. San Francisco 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh also continues to be mentioned as a candidate for the job.

Michigan fires head coach Brady Hoke (Updated) (Dr. Saturday)
12/2/2014 - The Brady Hoke era at Michigan is over. Michigan interim athletic director Jim Hackett informed Brady Hoke of his dismissal in a meeting Tuesday afternoon. Hackett then confirmed the news in a press conference later on Tuesday afternoon and in a press release .  "I met with Coach Hoke today and informed him of my decision to make a change in the leadership of our football program," Hackett said in a statement. "This was not an easy decision given the level of respect that I have for Brady. He has done a great job of molding these young men, making them accountable to their teammates, focusing them on success in the classroom and in the community. "I wanted to make sure that Brady received adequate time to exhibit the results that would come from his effort and I believe that Brady and our coaching staff had enough time to produce those results and unfortunately they are not there. In the end, I feel that moving in a different direction is the right decision. I wish Brady and his family all the best in the future." Hoke’s fourth season at the helm ended Saturday with a loss to rival Ohio State, dropping the Wolverines to 5-7 – the first time the program has missed out on a bowl game since 2009. Overall in four seasons, Hoke’s record at Michigan was 31-20 (18-14 Big Ten). "I feel very fortunate to have been an assistant and head coach at the University of Michigan," said Hoke. "I will always support the University and this football program. This is a special place and one that Laura, Kelly and I have enjoyed representing during our time in Ann Arbor. I want to thank all of the sons that played for our teams and appreciate the commitment that our coaches and support staff made to the program every day. "I will miss the relationships that I've been fortunate enough to make within this university and community. I additionally appreciate all of the support that our fans, alumni, students, administration and former players have provided our program. I leave with fond memories of my experience at Michigan. Thanks and Go Blue!" After six seasons at Ball State and two at San Diego State, Hoke was hired by former school athletic director Dave Brandon in January 2011, replacing Rich Rodriguez. His first season with the program was a big success. The Wolverines went 11-2, beat Ohio State and knocked off Virginia Tech in the Sugar Bowl as Hoke earned Big Ten Coach of the Year. Since then, the team's record has gotten worse each season. The Wolverines went 8-5 in 2012 and 7-6 in 2013 before this year's disastrous 5-7 campaign that was marred by the Shane Morris concussion incident. Hoke and Brandon – who resigned in late October  – were criticized for allowing the sophomore quarterback to stay in the game against Minnesota after appearing woozy following a hard hit to the helmet. Morris, who was later diagnosed with a concussion, was taken out a play later, but then was put back into the game for another play later on in the game. Before taking over as head coach at Ball State in 2003, Hoke served as an assistant on Lloyd Carr's staff at Michigan from 1995-2002. Hoke also had stints as an assistant at Grand Valley State, Western Michigan, Toledo and Oregon State following his playing career as a linebacker at Ball State from 1977 to 1980.  The school announced that current Olympic sport administrator and former football assistant Mike DeBord will "oversee the day-to-day aspects of the football program" until a new coach is hired.
