Is It Time Michigan Part Ways Finally With Jim Harbaugh?

 When Jim Harbaugh was hired as the Michigan coach everyone thought this would finally turn around a program that has struggled in recent years. Now Harbaugh's record isn't bad at 48-19 but just 1-4 in Bowl Games as the Michigan coach. The reason he was brought in was to beat The Ohio State Buckeyes, but that has not gone well for him. Ohio State has pretty much dominated Harbaugh in his head to head matchups. Why has Jim Harbaugh struggled so much as Michigan coach? Let's take a closer look at why he has not met expectations when he was hired.

Through the years Michigan has always had top-notch talent on both sides of the ball. Since Harbaugh has arrived he has struggled to bring in five-star recruits. Without top talent, you will struggle and that is one thing that has happened. Harbaugh loses top players to other schools and you cannot win this way. Harbaugh has complained about an uneven recruiting field, but it hasn't slowed down Ohio State. Winning all the time is something Michigan fans expect, but with the talent level, they have right now that's just not possible.

Firing Jim Harbaugh in my opinion may not ever happen, so the best way to do this is to part ways as a joint effort. Harbaugh has proven he cannot get the talent Michigan needs to compete on the National level. The problem is finding a coach that will be able to do that consistently. There are only so many of Nick Saban's in this world. No matter what I think it's time for Michigan and Jim Harbaugh to divorce in a civil matter at the end of the season. It's best for both people in the end.
