Jim Harbaugh claims he ain't going anywhere.

On Tuesday, FootballScoop published a report claiming that the Michigan coach was eyeing an exit strategy at Michigan and that his representatives "have their eye on getting their client back in the NFL."

A day later, Harbaugh swiftly denied the report – or even having a "representative" – in a brief note to the families of his players.

After Saturday's loss to Penn State, Michigan is just 1-10 against top-10 opponents under Harbaugh, and has a 5-2 record so far this season with two games remaining against top-10 opponents as well as games against Indiana and Michigan State.

Harbaugh is already out of Big Ten title contention and is staring down the barrel of a potential 8-4 season. If he really hasn't started searching for an exit strategy yet, maybe he should start. Because soon, somebody's going to be forced to make one for him.
