Michigan offers Jim Harbaugh 6-years, $48 million

Dec 17, 2014 at 3:19 PM--


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.

GM offers an interesting assessment of potential 49ers draft target Mac Jones

Much of the San Francisco 49ers-related draft discussion between now and Thursday will involve Mac Jones of Alabama. Monday's press conference with general manager John Lynch and head coach Kyle Shanahan has left many fans feeling that Jones is the likely pick at No. 3. While that may be disheartening for much of the fanbase, the decision ultimately comes down to what Shanahan wants for his offense. If the coach feels Jones being at the helm gives the 49ers the best chance to win future championships, that will be the pick. No amount of fan pushback will change that. Maybe Shanahan and Lynch are pulling off the ultimate bluff and setting fans up for a draft-day surprise. Or maybe it is indeed Jones. Jones could be successful. He may not be
