He’ll be staying with the Wolverines.“This is a choreographed message that comes up at this time every year before signing day,” Harbaugh told ESPN. “It’s people spreading messages to further their own personal agenda.“But I’m on record right here, right now: I’m not going anywhere. I’m staying at Michigan. We have big plans here, and there’s a lot we want to accomplish.”Harbaugh is in his fourth season at Michigan. He has the Wolverines playing in a New Year’s Six game this bowl season following a 10-win regular season.The head coach is 0-4 against Ohio State, though, so it’s unsurprising that Buckeyes fans have reacted in joy to his NFL decision.“And all of Ohio takes a deep breath of relief,” one fan tweeted.And all of Ohio takes a deep breath of relief.— Al Gonzalez (@chesspoof) December 9, 2018“Give him the lifetime contract!!!!” another added.Give him the lifetime contract!!!!— Buckeyes Crootin’ ?✌️ (@BuckeyesCrootin) December 9, 2018Harbaugh will be facing a new-look Ohio State program in 2019, as the Buckeyes will be led by Ryan Day, who’s replacing Urban Meyer.
