Paul Finebaum finally praises Jim Harbaugh, credits coach for 'one of the greatest' transformations in CFB history
Paul Finebaum might officially be on the Jim Harbaugh train for now. Finebaum has been a noted critic of Harbaugh, but praised the transformation that has happened in Ann Arbor because of the Michigan HC on ESPN’s ‘Get Up’.
Harbaugh has gone from someone on the hot seat to beating Ohio State in back-to-back seasons for the first time since 1999-2000.
“This is one of the greatest, if not the greatest, transformation in college football history. 2 years ago, he was this close to getting fired, they slashed his contract. He survived because of COVID, and what does he do, he runs the table two straight years in the regular season, he’s in the Playoff two straight years and he absolutely owns his rival two straight years.
“Suddenly, Jim Harbaugh’s no longer on the hot seat and some people are pointing their finger at Ryan Day at Ohio State,” said Finebaum. “That’s how great this has been.”
Harbaugh’s turnaround at Michigan has been something to watch.
