Michigan football coach Jim Harbaugh is anticipated to be named head coach of the Minnesota Vikings.
The Michigan Football team has had a difficult time recently, and it seems like things will continue to be difficult for the maize and blue. Following recent speculations, it looks that Jim Harbaugh will leave the school to become the head coach of the Minnesota Vikings.
This comes after Michigan Football finished the regular season with a 12-2 record and advanced to the College Football Playoff, where they were soundly defeated by the Georgia Bulldogs, who went on to win the National Championship.
Harbaugh has coached the Wolverines for the previous seven seasons, but he seems to be on his way out. There are several tweets confirming the claims, but Ian Rapoport reports that Harbaugh will be heading to Minnesota with the expectation of taking over as the team’s head coach. The tweet is below.
Earlier this week, other reports were spreading like wildfire on Twitter. Bob Heyrman, a Co-Site Expert, writes on rumours that Harbaugh might be headed to Florida to take over as head coach of the Miami Dolphins.
Heyrman included a tweet from Mark Carman in which he said that Harbaugh’s move to the Dolphins was almost accomplished. All of these sources appear to be pointing in various directions recently, and the truth has yet to be found.
Even though it seems like Harbaugh will join the Vikings, this has not been verified, despite it appears that they will get the Wolverines’ head coach.
If Jim Harbaugh is fired, Michigan Football may have to hunt for a new coach. The news about the Dolphins might have been a ruse or disinformation, and the same could be said of the Vikings’ situation. Rapoport, on the other hand, seems to have a grasp on the issue, sure that Harbaugh will return to the NFL.
Harbaugh’s first season as head coach of the Wolverines resulted in a 61-24 record and a single bowl victory. Even with a winning record, things were not always easy. The Wolverines’ supporters seemed to anticipate more from Harbaugh following this year’s stunning triumph against Ohio State, and it seemed that the fans had greater confidence in the head coach.
He now seems to be on his way to the NFL, leaving the Wolverines without a head coach. This comes after Mike MacDonald was traded to the Baltimore Ravens by Jim Harbaugh’s brother, John Harbaugh, for his coaching staff.
Nothing has been verified, and only time will tell, but it seems like Harbaugh’s days of wearing khakis and maize and blue shirts are coming to an end, and he may be returning to the NFL ranks.
