Michigan offers Jim Harbaugh 6-years, $48 million

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport is reporting that the University of Michigan is making another attempt to lure head coach Jim Harbaugh away from the San Francisco 49ers. After he initially turned them down, they have now come back with a 6-year, $48 million offer.

That would make Harbaugh the highest paid coach in college football.

This new offer comes after the 49ers being eliminated from playoff contention. It is widely believed that Harbaugh would be let go or traded by San Francisco at the end of the season. The 49ers only have two remaining games left.

Harbaugh has coached the 49ers to three consecutive NFC Championship games and a Super Bowl prior to the current disappointing season. The Oakland Raiders and New York Jets are believed to have some interest in Harbaugh as well.

Harbaugh was a quarterback for the University of Michigan during his college playing days.

The San Francisco 49ers could have gone in several other directions in 2017 with the first selection of the John Lynch and Kyle Shanahan era. They could have selected a franchise quarterback in a draft that included both Patrick Mahomes and Deshaun Watson. Last weekend, Lynch spoke of the decision to pass on Mahomes, who he would face three years later in the Super Bowl. "That will probably haunt me for a while because I remember going to his Pro Day," Lynch said. "We were in a different place as an organization, and we had a different plan for quarterback because we really weren't -- I remember going to his pro day doing my job but really as kind of a smokescreen



2021 salary cap floor raised to $180 million, giving 49ers a little wiggle room

The San Francisco 49ers have been working this offseason with the assumption that the 2021 salary cap would end up at the floor of $175 million. "We're operating under the premise of the floor, which is 175," general manager John Lynch told reporters in January. "We felt like that was best to operate off of that and kind of formulate our plans off of that. If it's anything on top, that's gravy for us. I think that's how a lot of teams are operating." It was always assumed that the salary cap would end up being higher, possibly as high as between $180 million and $185 million. But it's better to work with the floor and avoid any surprises. The 49ers — and all NFL teams — officially got a (very) little more wiggle room on
