SANTA CLARA (KRON) — There are reports Saturday night that Jim Harbaugh has agreed to become the new head coach at the University of Michigan.
CSN Bay Area reports it has confirmed that Harbaugh will coach his final game for the Niners Sunday before moving back to the college ranks. The move was first reported earlier Saturday by Bleacher Report.
