2021 is gearing up to be a “make or break” season for Michigan Wolverines head coach Jim Harbaugh. His contract was extended by the University this past offseason, albeit at a far reduced salary.
This comes on the heels of a disappointing 2-4 shortened campaign in 2020, bringing Harbaugh’s record to 49-22 since returning to the University as head coach in 2015, and 11-8 over the past two years.
However, according to senior wide receiver Ronnie Bell, things couldn’t be better in Ann Arbor.
“He’s the head of the sword, he’s the boss man,” said Bell. “I feel like he’s always been striving to get this energy. I feel like this has been the overall goal from the standpoint of how he wanted things to flow, team chemistry, team morale and how we love and care for one another.”
Bell went on to describe the overall team morale as the best that he’s seen.
“The team morale is the highest and best that I’ve ever seen on any team that I think I’ve ever been on – counting every basketball team, every baseball team, you name it,” he explained. “This team, and how much we love and care for one another, it’s so – it just passes along so well throughout this team.”
The Wolverines open the 2021 season next Saturday against the Western Michigan Broncos.
