Rumor Debunked: Michigan and Jim Harbaugh will not part ways at conclusion of season

Sharing is caring!

Earlier this week, a rumor surfaced claiming Jim Harbaugh and Michigan would part ways at the conclusion of the 2020 season.

According to John U. Bacon, those rumors are false and Michigan athletic director Warde Manuel and Harbaugh have not even had any conversations regarding a mutual split.

Here is the original rumor in case you missed it.

Ever since Jim Harbaugh took over as head coach of the Michigan Wolverines football team, there has been constant speculation that he will eventually leave the program.

Well, according to a rumor put out by Gregg Henson, who many of you may remember from his sports radio days in Detroit, multiple sources of his have indicated that Harbaugh and Michigan will part ways at the conclusion of the 2020 season.

From Greg Henson:

I’ve hesitated to write this even though I have mentioned it in passing on social media because I couldn’t confirm it with more than one source but I am now told by multiple sources that Jim Harbaugh and Michigan will mutually separate at the end of the season.

The same folks who FIRST told me Harbaugh was coming to Michigan tell me he is leaving at the end of the season.

Henson went on to add that Harbaugh and those above him are not on the same page when it comes to winning and competing with Ohio State.

Harbaugh has become disillusioned with the administration in Ann Arbor and their zeal to win.  He wants to win more than the folks at the top and the continual drumbeat for him to “tone it down” have caused him to lose belief and passion in the schools passion to compete with Ohio State.  This is obviously why the current Harbaugh isn’t the same guy who blew into Ann Arbor to resuscitate the Wolverines.  It’s blatantly obvious he is not the same guy by his demeanor on the sidelines.

His bosses want to win, on their terms and that simply can’t happen with Ohio State killing it in Columbus.  He can’t get some kids he wants and they do not want him making a spectacle of himself while trying to will the Wolverines to the top.

Nation, do you think that Henson’s sources are correct or will Harbaugh end up signing an extension with Michigan?
