Sad News: Michigan Wolverines manager has fired his quaterback……

Michigan head football coach Jim Harbaugh, who earlier this month led the Wolverines to a national championship, his crowning achievement during nine years with the program, is leaving his alma mater to return to the NFL, where he will coach the Los Angeles Chargers.

Harbaugh, 60, a former Michigan and NFL quarterback, was a first-round NFL Draft pick by Chicago in 1987 and spent two seasons (1999-2000) late in his career with the Chargers and made 17 starts.

“My love for Michigan, playing there and coming back to coach there, leaves a lasting impact,” Harbaugh said in a statement on the Chargers website.

“I’ll always be a loyal Wolverine. I’m remarkably fortunate to have been afforded the privilege of coaching at places where life’s journey has created strong personal connections for me.

From working as an assistant coach at Western Kentucky alongside my father, Jack, and time as an assistant with the Raiders, to being a head coach at USD, Stanford, the 49ers and Michigan — each of those opportunities carried significance, each felt personal.

When I played for the Chargers, the Spanos family could not have been more gracious or more welcoming. Being back here feels like home, and it’s great to see that those things haven’t changed.”
