Jim Harbaugh blames ‘jive turkeys’ for Rams rumors

Jim Harbaugh had his name linked to the Los Angeles Rams head coaching job the minute Jeff Fisher was fired, but Michigan football fans have no reason for concern.

When speaking at the team banquet on Tuesday night, Harbaugh addressed the rumors and made it clear he intends on remaining in Ann Arbor for the foreseeable future. Harbaugh also shared his thoughts on who is to blame for the rumors.

So who are the mean-spirited folks out there trying to drive Harbs away from Michigan?

According to Michigan’s leading man, it is his “enemies” and “jive turkeys.” Wait, what? Yes, jive turkeys. Let Harbaugh explain from here.

“I’m not leaving Michigan. Not even considering it,” Harbaugh said, via the Detroit Free Press.

“A lot of this talk is coming from our enemies, from coaches, you know the names. You probably know the names of the top three I’m referring to. They like to say that to the media. They like to tell that to the recruits, to their families, try to manipulate them into going to some other school besides Michigan. We know them as jive turkeys. Say it like it is. That’s the way it is.”

Okay, then.

The main take away here is that Harbaugh isn’t going anywhere and that he has a fascination with calling people jive turkeys. Gobble gobble.
