So, Michigan fans, what if I were to tell you that there are rumors floating around that Jim Harbaugh is going to get a contract extension in the coming week or so?
Well, regardless of your reaction, that is exactly the rumor that has been gaining steam since about 7:40 p.m. ET on Saturday night when Rob Parker of FS1 tweeted out just that.
Parker notes that his “moles” are telling him that the Wolverines are going to give Harbaugh an extension, despite his team being 2-4 in 2020.
My moles are telling me that @UMichFootball is GOING to extend coach Jim Harbaugh. Currently, he only has one year left on his contract. After all the struggles this season, some thought Harbaugh was headed back to NFL. Apparently, he’s staying with Wolverines. #staytuned

Following Parker’s tweet, Detroit Sports Nation reached out to multiple sources and one said, “Harbaugh will have an extension before the Wolverines play their next game.”
Nation, would this be the right decision?
