Could certainly be fired, but I don't know about Harbaugh. Hearing a lot this morning about  him exchanging some words with the Dolphins as a result of him being in Florida, and the 49ers and Panthers are rumored to be interested also. San Diego State's coach is supposed to be pretty interested in the Michigan position, don't be surprised if Michigan throws in the towel on Harbaugh and goes that route.

There's another coach with Michigan ties who still has a bowl game this week .... just saying.

Round on the ends and hi in the middle ....

This just in Harbaugh hired by Florida as the special teams coach.

Yeah, everyone in MI and many in OH seems to have a real love affair with Harbaugh.  However, there does not appear to be much of a chance that he will change schools if he stays in college football (I have been saying this all along).  USA Today article:

Brady Hoke (San Diego State) would seem to be a good fit, but hey, last time all the good fits either did not want the job or were passed over.  And, after the dismal showing of MI schools on Jan 1 does anyone really want to commit to that state?  The economy has delivered a real blow to MI, the cupboards for MI recruits are awfully low. Even the good players in Michigan HS's are looking to get the heck out of that state.

If Harbaugh leaves, we have a shot at swaying stud recruit LB James Vaughters out of his verbal to Stanford.  OSU happened to finish second in his recruitment.

Reports started to circulate on Sunday that Stanford coach Jim Harbaugh may not be around to coach the Cardinal next season. One of the Cardinal commits, linebacker James Vaughters (Tucker, Ga./Tucker), weighed in on the potential coaching change in Palo Alto.

"It's still Stanford and a great education and I am thinking about [this decision] a lot," Vaughters said. "I think I will stay but I will weigh my options one more time because I have to. I want to get a great education and play where the football is good. That's my expectations of college. I am still committed but I want to see happens to the Stanford coaching staff. If they stay I will. It not then I am not sure. I have lots of options and will weigh them all."

So what are Vaughters options, if not Stanford?

"Ohio State of course. And I may have to check out [Will] Muscamp at Florida," said Vaughters.

I think he will take the Carolina Panthers job since they have the #1 pick.  That way he will be able to draft Andrew Luck.  I still think it is surprising how far Jimmy Clausen has fallen.  Last year at this time we were talking about him as a first round pick and now he appears heading to the backup world.  Kind of reminds me of Brian Brohm.  People thought he would be an NFL stud and then Petrino bolted Louisville and his stock plummeted.  Now he is a backup in Buffalo.

FOX News Detroit reporting Rich Rodriguez has been fired as Michigan football coach. Buckeyes have bingo card "free space" removed from the end of their 2011 schedule. Thanks for the memories, RichRod. You raise me up.
