He has hired agent Don Yee of Tom Brady fame to represent him, and you don’t do that if you’re not pursuing the NFL. He loves Justin Herbert, he knows the organization and he's a perfect fit.

    I think he will be in the NFL real quick, especially after the NCAA was on his case hard this year

    it sure does sound like the NFL is where he is trending.

    George Brett, Bobby Orr and Terry Bradshaw.

    I would love to see harbaugh and Herbert team up, love it, and the Broncos will have to play them, which means Sean Payton will get his a.. kicked. I don't like Sean Payton anymore, he's become the new Aaron Rodgers for me.

    Everyone has pretty much known since mid-season or before that he was heading to the NFL, it's not like it was a secret. For some odd reason the Chargers are the "destination" franchise right now. They deserve Harbaugh.

    I dont follow the college game closely. Is Harbaugh considered a poor coach? Michigan always seems to be at the top of the college football rankings.

    Well, right now Harbaugh isn't on the sidelines because he was suspended for the rest of the season due to a cheating scandal, but the last few seasons he's been one of the best coaches in college football, usually has his team ready and motivated to play. The Wolverines knocked off Alabama last night in the CFP Rose Bowl and will now play for the national championship next week against Washington despite Harbaugh not being on the sidelines, but bet your bottom dollar they were playing hard for him, they love the guy. Justin Herbert can definitely benefit from Harbaugh, who was a quarterback himself for the Chargers at one point, so he knows the organization and he knows the quarterback position, I think it will be a good fit.

    I think Harbaugh is a better than average coach but he's a part of what I call the "new breed" of coach that's been around for awhile in NCAA ranks and is growing more prevalent in the NFL. These men want more than to just coach, they want the power that goes along with the GM position that brings them final say in all matters. Other members who are more familiar with such matters can better speak to it, for me it seemed to be what drove Paul Brown out of Cleveland when Art Modell became principal owner, later it was part of the friction between Modell and Marty Schottenheimer and still later when Belichick was Head Coach.

    The same thing sort of pushed Harbaugh out of San Francisco and he landed at Michigan where he was granted more control and prestige. It's an almost certainty that if he does go to the Chargers that he'll consolidate power there, too. If he can't, I'd assume he'll end up with a team where he can function as Head Coach and GM, or in the least not be handcuffed by a GM overseeing his decisions.

    Power, control and ego is what drives these men. In the proper measures it'll work, if not it ends up with a shove through the door.

    I watched the game and didn’t even notice Harbaugh wasn’t on the sidelines. Guess that shows how much attention I pay to the head coaches. 😳

    No, my mistake, he actually was on the sidelines. I was busy trying to put together a vacuum cleaner half the night, so I only got glimpses of the game. What we do for women.

    Yeah yeah, I know, my wife runs the show. Well you've never been savagely beaten with a dough roller before!

    NCAA is going to try to crucify him for violations next season. So maybe they suspend him again for 3-6 games. It’s an easy decision. If he wins or loses Monday it’s probably his last game in college football

    Harbaugh is considered an excellent coach. He won at San Diego, won at Stanford, and won at Michigan. Without a power outage, he probably has a Super Bowl title, too.

    Michigan was a mess three years ago. Harbaugh changed what he was doing and they're 39-3 since.

    Hes been trying to get back into the NFL for a couple years now. In the past he had been trying to demand full control and teams werent willing to give it to him. I dont know if his demands have changed or a team is willing to do it, but he is facing multiple NCAA Level 1 violations. The NCAA has just been dragging their feet on doing something because they didnt want to interfere with a playoff team

    Michigan is also about to lose a lot of players to graduation as well and their recruiting class isnt in the top 10. Frankly being an NFL coach is just easier now, you dont have to spend half of your time recruiting

    Like I said, he was a legendary quarterback for San Diego's fighting Chargers. With his guidance, Justin Herbert will reach the stars!

    I don't like Harbaugh bc he is arrogant and cheats. But it would be the best hire the Chargers could make and my Duck Herbert would greatly benefit...........

    Of course, he dam well better beat the Huskies (we hates them my precious, quack quack).
