Who will replace Jim Harbaugh?

According to a report from Chris Balas of The Wolverine, current Michigan offensive coordinator Sherrone Moore is expected to replace Harbaugh as the Wolverines' head coach.

From On3:

“Sherrone Moore is expected to be named the next Michigan football coach in 7-10 days, according to Chris Balas of The Wolverine. He will replace Jim Harbaugh, who left for the NFL to become the coach of the Los Angeles Chargers.”

The Logical Choice

With Harbaugh officially leaving Ann Arbor, Sherrone Moore seems like the logical choice as a replacement. Moore, of course, coached the Wolverines to HUGE wins over Penn State and Ohio State. Those wins allowed Michigan to advance to their third consecutive Big Ten Championship Game. Moore is extremely popular amongst the players, and he is known to be a solid recruiter.
