Michigan Reportedly Offering $8M a Year for Coach

December 18, 2014

The University of Michigan has reportedly offered Jim Harbaugh, head coach of the San Francisco 49ers in the National Football League, a six-year $48 million contract to become head football coach at Michigan, Sports Illustrated reported. The article noted that there are several reports about the $48 million figure, and one report of a $49 million figure. Assuming the former would mean $8 million a year. That would be more than the $6.9 million a year paid to Nick Saban of the University of Alabama, currently the college football coach earning more than any other.
