IDK. You have to question his QB development. Despite bringing in highly


rated classes, they haven't had a QB worth a damn on the field during his tenure(even with some touted transfers), and that is supposed to be his brand. Hard to win without that, and this year has been abysmal.

I would normally say give a pass on this season, but Michigan can't put up with struggling with Rutgers to 3OT. As a college football program, the one thing you have to avoid is carrying a coach who is struggling, and doesn't know how to fix it. That will kill your morale, will kill recruiting, will harm fan base. Unfortunately, Harbaugh is trending that direction.

Sometimes, it's just the wrong guy or the wrong situation. Even great coaches struggle in the wrong place. They likely won't get a name with the panache of Harbaugh, but might be able to find a better overall fit. Doesn't seem like a great year to switch coaches, but that might mean the least competition for a guy that checks the boxes.

There should be a well populated transfer portal this off-season. Like Covid accelerating the death of poorly run businesses, it is speeding along the collapse of poorly constructed football programs, and poor player fits. I suspect there are quite a few talented players in those programs looking to go elsewhere. If Harbaugh can have success recruiting transfers, you have to see that as a public vote of confidence. Maybe that is enough for a little more time, but you have to start putting together a list of replacements.
