ANN ARBOR, MI – APRIL 04: Head coach Jim Harbaugh of the Michigan Wolverines listens in on an offensive huddle during the Michigan Football Spring Game on April 4, 2015 at Michigan Stadium in Ann Arbor, Michigan. (Photo by Gregory Shamus/Getty Images)Michigan is 0-1 after an opening weekend loss to Notre Dame. The criticism of Jim Harbaugh in the media has mounted.Harbaugh is in his fourth year at his alma mater. He hasn’t won the Big Ten yet, and will face increased pressure if his team goes 8-4 again this season.However, he is not on the hot seat, according to university president Dr. Mark Schlissel.Speaking during a meeting of the Detroit Economic Club, Schlissel commented on Harbaugh’s job [email protected] on @CoachJim4UM: “He’s not on the hot seat. He’s under contract for four more years.” #econclub— Detroit EconomicClub (@deteconomicclub) September 5, 2018Harbaugh is still a much better bet to be successful at Michigan than many other head coaches. He might not have hit every benchmark just yet but it makes sense for the school to be dedicated to him for the long haul.Of course, could Harbaugh leave on his own accord and go back to the NFL? That could happen, but don’t expect him to be forced out.Michigan looks to get in the win column this weekend when they host Western Michigan. Kickoff is set for noon ET at the Big House.FS1 will broadcast the game.
