this guy evidently hired to work for AD
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.
I just realized that if Jim Harbaugh becomes Michigan's coach, I won't actually find out about it on MGoBlog.
The server will be in full meltdown mode as soon as the news hits. It could be the last we see of each other for months.
So if it happens, farewell in advance. Lives will change by then. People will move on, new people will come in. Milestones will be reached in the cycle of life - births, graduations, marriages, divorces, retirements, deaths.
MGrowOld will become even older and move to Florida. MGoBrewMom and Carlos SpicyWeiner will finally hook up. WD will get married and have kids who will attend Michigan. Brain will shave. Things will be different. They say you can never go back. The MGoBlog you wake up to that morning will not be the same MGoBlog that one day returns to you.
I did not want to live with the regret of not saying a proper goodbye. As each day passes, we get closer to that fateful day where we are all separated from each other, with no reunion date certain. It will be a bittersweet moment, but there can be no joy without some sadness as well. Such is life.
Au revoir, MGoBlog.
