|2 days 9 hours ago||I disagree, the NFL is very||
I disagree, the NFL is very volatile. Every year there's a coaching carousel. I'd say the NFL is more volatile than the NCAA. Sometimes coaches don't even get 2 years before they get canned. College coaches ususually get 3-4 years minimum before being shown the door. Now there are more college football programs than NFL teams but if you're talking Power 5 schools then there's not a huge disparity.
I believe Schlissel and Hackett are going about this search the right way this time which makes me think that whoever they select is going to be in the position for many years. Jim may not get this shot again for a long time. In the NFL every year there is an opportunity, Greg Schiano got a job for crying out loud. It's churn and burn. Jim's already shown he can coach in the NFL. Even if things go badly for him in Ann Arbor some NFL team would give him a shot. He has an NFC Championship ring. He'll get another shot guaranteed.

I doubt they make a big cheese offer like this without some indication from the Harbaugh camp that there is interest. Now that the offer has been made there has been no official rejection of the offer and any implication that Jim is using the offer as leverage is ridiculous. There's no way Jim strings his Alma Mater along causing potential damage in the interest of his own selfish career pursuits. I think there is a strong possibility based on the facts that he does accept the offer.

Sorry but I would beg to differ. Any coach who takes his team to 3 NFCCG's and a SB and then loses the lockeroom in his first 4 years in the league still has some polishing to do.

If that logic were true then why not suspend all discussion until you've fulfilled your contract term?
|6 days 17 hours ago||Another thing to keep in mind||
Another thing to keep in mind for all those who don't think he'd leave the NFL. Jim is a smart guy. He's gonna look at what happened, or what didn't happen, in Santa Clara and see that the same thing could easily happen in Oakland or anywhere the Niners send him. He lost the locker room. NFL players don't respond to the ass chewing style of coaching a la Bo. I don't see the Niners FO releasing him since he has trade value. They could send him across the country to a team he may want no part of.
Even if the Raiders are an option there are rumors they may relocate once again to LA. That would blow any notion of him taking the Raiders job so he could keep his family where they are for daily involvement. LA is almost 400 miles away from the Bay with flight time, gate time and driving time that's a 2 hour commute at minimum. With bad CA traffic that could be more like a 3 hour propostion. Not exactly something you'd want to do daily after late nights at the office.
UM may be the most attractive choice if he can't be near his family, in terms of how he wants to coach and the control he wants to have. I don't see Jim staying in the NFL and transforming himself into Pete Carroll.

So awesome to think that not only did my Seahawks knock the Niners out of playoff contention but may also have provided the final motiviation for Harbaugh's return to Ann Arbor.

The Niners have to face my Seahawks next week and there is no way they win that game at Clink Stadium. It's a rivalry game, the fans are going to be rabid and the Hawks are rollin.

Exactly. One bad season does not a coaching career make. He's been successful everywhere he's coached.

I'm a Hawks fan due to many years in Seattle and thoroughly enjoyed today with the win over Philly and the Niner loss to the Raiders helping both my teams.

Man our offense sucks soooo bad.

We haven't seen enough of Shane to make that determination. Hopefully Harbaugh comes and can get the kid some real coaching.

Is it Devin sucking or is it Devin not getting the coaching he needs?

That pass took forever to get there almost picked again.

Great game so far.

You're correct we have a long way to go before we can even start getting excited about this possibility coming true. It may not happen. The odds may be against it happening. However, the big obstacles have been cleared away now. Brandon is gone, the honemoon in the Bay is gone and the current coach is most likely gone. Considering all that and how Jim feels about Bo and that UM is the one place in the world where Bo still "lives" on may be compelling enough for him to come.

Carlos, you might want to think about changing your sheets once in a while they've been on that bed for some time now and may need a break...just sayin.

Wait a minute, are you allowed to make a tit joke in Yoda voice?

Do we know the reason behind the bender? Did it have anything to do with Les Miles?

Perhaps it was because Moss didn't get along with Jim Harbaugh? Based on Moss' comments Sunday it sure doesn't sound like he dug Harbaugh's leadership style, which he says resulted in players being treated "like college kids."
|6 weeks 5 days ago||The problem with that||
The problem with that scenario is that Jim has very little say in what team he goes to. I don't think Jim is going to go for that.
|6 weeks 5 days ago||He's never going to go to||
He's never going to go to Oakland. I've said this several times that Jim is gonna realize he either changes his coaching style and stays in the NFL or he coaches the way he thinks is right and returns to coaching college.
|6 weeks 5 days ago||Not sure why the audio was a||
Not sure why the audio was a tipping point since it only served to confirm what everything else that was reported confirmed, Gary Moeller was drunk off his ass. He wasn't in his right mind and was making terrible decisions that night. Unfortunately the university didn't feel it could extend any grace to a guy that had never had an issue before and had given so much to the program. Terrible call.

I've posted a couple of times about what might have happened had Mo not been railroaded out of town. Could Bo's legacy been extended even farther than it was under Coach Carr? I think the answer would have been yes. We could have had several years of Mo and then maybe Lloyd or someone else would have tacked on another 10 years or so. We would probably have had at least one more NC in there as well.

You could also read this, in light of Harbaugh's comments, as Schlissel is trying to line up his philosophy with Jim's.
