This is complete bunk. The athletic department just announced evaluation of the football program like all other sports will start after the end of the season including the post season. So RR will be here for at least a month.
Actually, it appears he will be here for 24 months barring outright collapse next year. DB will follow his beloved mentor, Bo, using Bo's dictum of a full 5 yr requirement to eveluate any coach in a new program. More to the point, DB told the Cleveland alumni this week that he is really excited to think of Denard as a senior at the "Jerry" bowl with Alabama in 2012. A potential Denard transfer is something he will avoid, hence no Harbaugh or anyone else if he can possibly help it. He talked about bringing the wow factor to Michigan. As far as the defense, he also talked about our 18 year-olds fresh from the prom playing against 22-23 year-olds with 19 seniors. He watches film every Sunday after games with RR and says there is no way for a quick fix of the defense, but that it will improve. He spoke with Lynn Henning about the risks inherent in change and has said he does not want Michigan to start to be seen as a school that changes coaches every 3 years. Finally he appears to prefer the spread offense as part of the wow factor along with night games etc. Hence no Harbaugh, ever, since JH neither favors the spread nor can he defend against it as seen in his 52-31 loss to Oregon in which 625 yards were put up against him. Further, he threw the UM program under the bus in 2007, with comments on academics in the department, and has an arrogance that does not represent UM well. Finally he started with 2 losing seasons at Stanford before goint to a bowl in his 3rd season and going 8-5. Do we want to do thjat again?
I look forward to a very exciting future with DB and RR at the helm
