Monday afternoon, Michigan head football coach, Jim Harbaugh, announced that he will be staying in Ann Arbor for the 2023 season.

In Michigan’s official announcement, U-M president Santa Ono broke the news:

“I just got off the phone with Coach Harbaugh and Jim shared with me the great news that he is going to remain as the head coach of the Michigan Wolverines.” Ono said. “That is fantastic news that I have communicated to our athletic director, Warde Manuel. Go Blue!”

The announcement comes just hours after Michigan football received a series of returnees from the 2022 squad; most recently, defensive tackle Kris Jenkins. The Wolverines are also retaining RB Blake Corum, offensive linemen Trevor Keegan and Zak Zinter, and many more. While the announcement was somewhat expected, Harbaugh has made it official.

Jim Harbaugh’s statement

After Santa Ono’s statements came the announcement from the Wolverines’ head coach himself:

“I love the relationship that I have at Michigan — coaches, staff, families, administration, President Santa Ono, and especially the players and their families.” Harbaugh said. “My heart is at the University of Michigan. I once heard a wise man say, ‘don’t try to out-happy, happy.’ Go Blue!”

After weeks of debating whether or not the Wolverines would need a new head coach, Jim Harbaugh has one again made his commitment to Michigan football public. The rumors and wait are over, and Michigan now has a shot at a third-straight Big Ten Championship in 2023. On top of that, I suspect that the Wolverines will be in the mix for the program’s first National Championship since 1997.
