Michigan football coach Jim Harbaugh has become the nation’s favorite leading man.
Without having won a National Championship, or even made a College Football Playoff, he has managed to establish himself as one of the elite coaches in the FBS.
Now entering his third season with the Wolverines, we are starting to see results other than just on the field.
On Wednesday, Land of 10 reported the APR score for the Michigan football team will net coach Jim Harbaugh a $150,000 bonus. Harbaugh had to return an APR score of at least 960 in both single year, and multi-year calculations. Michigan scored a 997.
Earlier in the week, it was announced that Michigan had achieved one of the top six APR scores in the country.=
