Thread for the press conference and "Harbaugh Day" pre-Michigan/Illinois basketball game (because I'm sure we'll need another tonight when the recruiting responses start rolling in).
A bit more detail: Harbaugh contract is approximately $5 million for 7 years, with incentives. Clearly, Michigan would like him to stay.— John U. Bacon (@Johnubacon) December 30, 2014
Jim Harbaugh told Hackett he did NOT want to be the highest paid coach in CFB, or even the Big Ten. More concerned with pay for assistants.— John U. Bacon (@Johnubacon) December 30, 2014
Confirmed: Press conference is at noon at Junge Center. Harbaugh will be introduced to fans at halftime of basketball game.— John U. Bacon (@Johnubacon) December 30, 2014
Figured the buzz would be strong with this hiring, but even I am surprised at the reaction of the recruits I have talked to.— Steve Lorenz (@TremendousUM) December 30, 2014
Michigan commit Brian Cole said he's expecting Jim Harbaugh to call him at 1:30 today. #UAALLAMERICA— Tom VanHaaren (@TomVH) December 30, 2014

Bo tried to tell y'all.. "Those who stay.."
Its Great To Be A Michigan Wolverine
Barring a large offer from the Raiders, I will open the tab at Ashley's in Ann Arbor tonight starting at 8:30 for a celebratory 100 pints of beer. To qualify you need to be wearing a Michigan hat, khakis are optional. Let's enjoy the first night of our Honeymoon! Is anyone interested in me bringing my stuffed wolverine for photo ops?
Ian Rapoport is reporting that Jim Harbaugh himself will be in attendance, but then again we know how on top of it he is.
Curious to how many people plan on showing up so let's roll call it. "UofMDDS96 party of 100 right this way."
If you've been following this guy.....He probably would have been better off just deleting his account.
With the crazy amount of threads on the topic lately, I figure it would be useful to have one thread where we can keep track of all of our favorite Harbaugh-related videos.
I defended Dave Brandon during the departments upheaval and I could not have been more wrong. Fast forward a few weeks and I sit here in complete shock and awe of the job Hackett has done. Today truly is a special day in Michigan's history.
Hat tip to Jim Hackett who brought home our man.
