Pretty much. I think after giving up 60 points to Illinois the AD said he has to go. the defense is just so dam terrible. Offense got better but still no running back to really compliment Robinson. Good luck to Rich rob but his style and recruiting him just didn't work in the Big 10. I'm a Michigan fan and i think he's a good coach but you just can't trot out 240lbs d lineman and think that's gonna cut it.
gonna be interesting to see who they get. Not really sure it's Harbaugh myself.
Exactly. He was done in Mich. As for Harbaugh, if he is smart (and he seems to be) - he will come to NFL. It makes no sense for him to stay at the NCAA level. He can always go back to college if he wants to in 3-4 years. If he doesn't do so hot at Michigan or Stanford, he may not get a job at NFL level (as a HC) or at least won't have as many suitors. Right now, he is in the driving seat and can field offers from 3-4 teams and get a big fat contract.
Coming to Niners make a LOT of sense for him, provided Jed is ready to match any contract he gets. He doesn't have to uproot his family and that can be a huge factor. Also, we have some really good young players - and he can do wonders with Crabtree, Vernon, and our running game. So, we should be an attractive team to most coaches - as far as the players are concerned.
