There’s always speculation about how long Jim Harbaugh will stay with the Michigan Wolverines.

Some say he’ll be gone after only a few years before jumping back to the NFL, while others think he’ll stay at his alma mater for decades.

Harbaugh was asked that question himself during an appearance on Sirius XM College Sports: Does he see himself staying at Michigan for 20 or 25 years?

“Yeah, I think that way,” Harbaugh said. “And I think, God willing and the creek don’t rise, that will happen. I love coaching, I love football, I love the University of Michigan and you hope to go as long as you can where you’re still doing it by example, not just through anecdote, and you’re still able to do that as long as the good Lord will allow you to do it.”

That’s an answer that will make a lot of folks in Ann Arbor very happy.
