Harbaugh heads to LA:

After leading the Michigan Wolverines to a 15-0 season and a National Championship, Jim Harbaugh has accepted the head coach position for the Los Angeles Chargers. Harbaugh, who went 86-25 during his tenure as the Wolverines coach, makes his return to the NFL. From 2011 to 2014, Harbaugh was the head coach for the San Francisco 49ers where he posted an impressive 49-22-1 record and led the 49ers to three consecutive NFC championship games including one Super Bowl appearance.

The return to the NFL comes as no surprise as Harbaugh is reported to have been linked to multiple NFL jobs over the last few years. Considering the fact that Harbaugh has also come under fire via suspensions from the NCAA & Big Ten for recruiting violations and the now infamous sign stealing investigations, there’s not a more opportune time for Harbaugh to start anew.
