Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh has four more years remaining on his contract with the Wolverines, but if Michigan AD Warde Manuel has anything to say about it, he’ll be around much longer.
Manuel said on Tuesday that he hopes Harbaugh retires (in many years) as the head coach of the Wolverines.
Per MLive.com, Manuel said he’s thrilled with the coaches Michigan has at the moment and doesn’t want anything to change:
“I love my coaches across the board, love those two guys in particular,” Manuel said on Tuesday afternoon during meetings featuring Big Ten athletic directors and men’s basketball coaches at the conference headquarters just outside of Chicago. “I’m extremely pleased with where we are from a staffing, coaching standpoint and Jim and John are two people that I would love to see retire from this institution, retire from coaching.”
There has been some stirring about Harbaugh’s place in Ann Arbor, especially after the Wolverines dipped to 8-5 last season.
However, it doesn’t look like he’s going anywhere anytime soon, unless he’s the one who wants to leave.
