'Enough is enough!': Ex-Michigan QB Brian Griese blasts Jim Harbaugh's performance as head coach
Fans and media being unhappy with a coaching situation is not unusual in college football. There’s always going to be a section of a fanbase that isn’t satisfied with the results, no matter how good they are.
When former players, boosters and alumni start weighing in, that’s when there might be a serious issue. And that’s starting to happen at Michigan. This weekend, it was former Wolverines quarterback Brian Griese who took a shot at Jim Harbaugh for the lack of results produced in Ann Arbor.
Michigan dropped a 27-17 contest to previously-winless Penn State on Saturday, falling to 2-4 on the year. Near the end of the game, ABC shared a graphic showing the struggles Harbaugh has had during his time as the head coach. The graphic included:
- Harbaugh’s 0-5 record vs. Ohio State
- Michigan’s 3-3 mark vs. Michigan State under Harbaugh
- An 11-16 mark vs. ranked opponents over the last 6 seasons
- Harbaugh’s 2-12 record vs. Top 10 teams
- 0 B1G titles
That’s a lot to digest in one graphic. Griese couldn’t handle it any longer, taking to social media and sharing the graphic, with the statement, “Enough is enough!”

Rumblings about Harbaugh’s job security have continued throughout the 2020 season, essentially since the devastating loss to Michigan State in the second week of the season. The only saving grace at this point would be a win over Ohio State, which looks incredibly unlikely considering how both teams are playing right now.
There has been no verified talk of a potential coaching change in Ann Arbor, but the longer Harbaugh sticks around, the louder the conversation gets about a potential buyout or a mutual separation at the end of the season.
The end of the 2020 season, and what happens to Harbaugh when it comes to a close, will be something to keep an eye on.
