Brady Hoke, as of this moment, is still Michigan’s coach. The Shane Morris fiasco and a season quickly becoming an embarrassing quagmire could change that at some point in the next few months.
Barring some out-of-nowhere turnaround, Michigan probably will be looking for a new coach after the season. San Francisco 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh has had his name thrown around in rumors already, but NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport reported Sunday Michigan may actually be more interested in the other Harbaugh brother.
The Baltimore Sun, though, reported Monday John Harbaugh isn’t expected to go after the Michigan job. For one, Harbaugh is good friends with Hoke and two, the Sun reports he’s content in Baltimore despite some reported friction with the organization over the handling of Ray Rice.
Either Harbaugh would be a dream hire for Michigan, as grew up in Ann Arbor and Jim was a quarterback for the Wolverines from 1983-1986. But since Hoke hasn’t been fired yet, it’s technically not a vacant position — so maybe things will change when the position does come open.
