Jim Harbaugh began his football career with the Michigan Wolverines when he played with the team in the 1980s. Now it seems the second-year head coach is planning on ending his career with his Alma Mater.
Harbaugh recently appeared on Sirius XM College Sports and was asked about the future of his career, which could last the next 20-25 years. He said that he feels like he would end his career with the Wolverines, which could make him the longest tenured coach in team history.
“Yeah, I think that way,” Harbaugh said. “And I think, God willing and the creek don’t rise, that will happen. I love coaching, I love football, I love the University of Michigan and you hope to go as long as you can where you’re still doing it by example, not just through anecdote, and you’re still able to do that as long as the good Lord will allow you to do it.”
Since beginning his coaching career in 2004, Harbaugh has a college record of 68-30 with two conference championships at San Diego and an NFL record of 44-19 with three NFC Championship Game appearances and an appearance in Super Bowl XLVII.
It will certainly be interesting to see how much longer Jim Harbaugh is actually around in Ann Arbor.
