this guy evidently hired to work for AD
Surprised he did not wait to inquire about the Pitt job. Guess he likes the idea of coaching at home.
I expect that if there is anything of significance that comes us, there will be new threads created. For now, for those of us up early scouring MgoBlog for anything of interest on the Harbaugh, Miles, cc front, let's use this as the general discussion thread.
By the way, thanks, Internet, for making me exhausted today! The Twitter / board frenzy around 11 last night cost me a good hour and a half of sleep. Harbaugh needs to announce that he is coming home pronto!
Both Henson and Moss (YTM) have for some reason become much more positive about Harbaugh in the last 15 minutes. Henson was already very positive but just went "way more positive" and Moss (who Brian did not shoot down as a source a few weeks ago) said "I was never convinced that Jim Harbaugh was coming here until about 15 minutes ago."
The "crowned one" says 8 years, 49 mil (6.125 a year) is the deal. That would make sense - puts him in the "top 5" of NCAA coaches (#2 behind Saban) as Brian reported he wishes. And a $1M+ bump vs NFL salary.
Some connection to the Moeller stuff but seems like something happened in addition in the last 15 minutes. The Moeller stuff has been going on for 48 hrs - it would be strange for that to be a "new" surprise to 2 guys focused so intently on this hire within a 15 minute time span.
Again, "edge of internet" so eat your salt.
EDIT 11:20 PM EST - more Henson rumor mongering is Harbaugh looking at DJ Durkin as DC. He is current interim coach of UF and served 2 years under Muschamp as DC. Connection to Harbaugh = special teams coach for Stanford in 07-09. 36 years old (!).
Durkin is a Youngstown (!) OH boy, who has tons of Midwest ties via Bowling Green, Notre Dame in 2001-2006 as a GA and position coach. Been at Florida since 2010.
He's enrolling early, so little chance we can steal him back once Harbaugh is hired.
