The Los Angeles Chargers are hiring Michigan head coach Jim Harbaugh as their new head coach, Sports Illustrated’s Albert Breer reported Wednesday. The Chargers now also need to fill their vacant general manager position to pair with Harbaugh.
Harbaugh spent the past nine years leading the Wolverines, which culminated in Michigan winning the national championship this year. The veteran coach previously coached the San Francisco 49ers in the NFL, going 44-19-1 in four seasons which included a Super Bowl appearance.
With Harbaugh leaving, Michigan now has a head coach opening as the school looks to defend its title next season.
