In the midst of another postseason, the rumors regarding Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh and NFL jobs have begun to swirl. That has been the norm since he took over as head coach.
Michigan athletic director Warde Manuel, appearing Thursday on WTKA 1050 in Ann Arbor, shot down those rumors.
On Wednesday, Cris Carter, the former Ohio State receiver, said on FS1 of the head-coaching vacancy in Green Bay to “watch out for Jim Harbaugh, because Jim Harbaugh potentially is trying to get his way out of Michigan.” He cited “sources” telling him the Cleveland Browns also could be shopping for Harbaugh.
Harbaugh just completed his fourth regular season coaching the Wolverines to a 10-2 record and a New Year’s Six Bowl appearance against Florida in the Peach Bowl.
“I would say consider the source of the comment,” Manuel said on WTKA. “Cris is very accomplished in his life, but he went to the school down south. We tend to throw out things like that — sources said, my sources. Listen, I have not missed any sleep. Jim has not said anything to me about it. He’s on the road recruiting, putting great effort in.
