Harbaugh Could Take Financial Hit Over Michigan Sign-Stealing Reports

Oct 30, 2023

The accusations of sign-stealing and controversy surrounding the University of Michigan’s football team, which has triggered a variety of hot takes around college football, is now reportedly hitting head coach Jim Harbaugh’s finances.

According to the Wall Street Journal, Michigan has rescinded a new contract offer that would have made Harbaugh the highest-paid coach in the Big Ten. Harbaugh, however, has refuted the report — noting, “I wouldn’t say that’s accurate.”

Harbaugh currently makes a little more than $8 million annually, which ranks 12th in the nation and fourth in the Big Ten. Ohio State coach Ryan Day tops the conference with a $10.27 million annual salary — the fourth-highest in the country.
