Jim Harbaugh and the Michigan team announced a reworked deal and a contract extension through 2026 following playoff appearances and NFL rumors.
Jim Harbaugh is locked in for another season at Michigan and so is a new contract.
The Wolverines head coach signed a five-year contract on Wednesday, which runs until 2026.
The school did not disclose the terms of the agreement but it did confirm that it “changes the terms and length of the agreement signed last January”.

“I love Michigan Football, the University of Michigan and the Ann Arbor community,” Harbaugh said in one declare. “My family and I are delighted to continue to lead this football program, and we are very grateful for the support that the athletics department and our university administration have shown to the team. I appreciate all that our players, coaches and staff are doing to excel on and off the field. My enthusiasm for tomorrow, the day after tomorrow and every day that follows is as high as ever, and we are ready to hit the field training and start preparing for the 2022 season. Go Blue! ”
Harbaugh is in the hot seat after a tough 2020 season, so he’s restructured his contract with the Wolverines, taking in less money while hoping to prove himself worthy to keep the job going. He did it quite radically by leading Michigan to victory over rival Ohio State, then a Big Ten championship and a spot in the College Rugby Round.
After that resounding success, the NFL called and Harbaugh interviewed the Vikings while interest from other teams reportedly swirled. However, after a whirlwind of speculation, he finally committed his future to werewolves.
Since he took a pay cut last year, Michigan’s awarding him a new contract recognizes his success — and gives him a strong incentive to stick with the job.
