Jim Harbaugh is going out a winner.
After directing Michigan to a national title, Harbaugh accepted the job as new head coach for the Los Angeles Chargers Wednesday. It is a five-year contract.
It’s back to the NFL for Harbaugh. He had a successful stint with the San Francisco 49ers in the early 2010s (along with quarterback Colin Kaepernick) before butting heads with leadership there.
It will be interesting to see what happens to Michigan’s future odds at Michigan sportsbooks for next season. As of Thursday morning, DraftKings and FanDuel each had the Wolverines as seventh pick to win the 2024 title at +1400. They were fifth in the original postings.
