Earlier this week, it was reported by Brady Quinn that Michigan was working with Jim Harbaugh on a lifetime contract. After Michigan’s game against Ohio State, Harbaugh was asked about this.
The question posed to him was about the lifetime contract and whether this was a distraction for the Wolverines football team this week in their preparation against Ohio State.
Harbaugh’s response? “No. Fake news.” Mildly laughing as he said it.
While Harbaugh may end up receiving a long term extension at some point, it appears the rumor has no firm basis. Quinn, a former Notre Dame quarterback, may not be the best outlet to trust when it comes to rumors.
Fake news until proven otherwise apparently.
