The Michigan Wolverines lost another big game on Saturday night when they lost by a touchdown at Penn State and dropped to 5-2 on the season.
The Wolverines are now 1-10 vs. top-10 teams and 1-7 on the road vs. ranked teams under Harbaugh.
Following the game, the noise to have Harbaugh relieved of his duties as the head man at Michigan grew louder as the program’s chances of reaching the College Football Playoff and Big Ten Championship Game seem all but dead.
Harbaugh might see the writing on the wall and is reportedly already working on his exit strategy.
According to FootballScoop.com:
“Lead FOX college football analyst Joel Klatt speculated last month Harbaugh could retire, but sources say the Harbaugh camp has its eye on a different departure.
Sources tell FootballScoop that Harbaugh’s representatives have their eye on getting their client back in the NFL.”
Harbaugh’s NFL tenure was a successful one as he led the San Francisco 49ers to Super Bowl 47 and if it wasn’t for a fallout with the 49ers ownership, Harbaugh would probably still be in San Francisco.
It remains to be seen if this rumor will prove to be true.
