Jim Harbaugh Gets a 10% Raise – Are You OK With That?
MLive says Jim Harbaugh is getting a 10% raise. He makes $5 mil. That's a half million dollar raise. It's in his contract. This past season, the Wolverines were 8-5. Michigan was the only Big Ten team to not win it's bowl game. Now I understand, the Michigan athletics program is a billion (with a B) dollar business. His $5 million per season is a drop in the bucket. But as radio-TV host Dan Patrick said this morning, look at his record at Michigan. He's Brady Hoke.
And here's the real bottom line. Michigan fans and more importantly, alums and donors, want a "Michigan guy". Harbaugh is a Michigan guy. And he's been successful everywhere he played and coached.
But bottom line, if he'd beat Ohio State, we're not having this conversation. Oh, and you and I need a better agent.
