Weekend reactions from Jim Harbaugh’s announced contract extension

In a time full of fluidity in reports from both local and national reporters on the future of Jim Harbaugh and the Michigan football program, clarity was finally reached as Nick Baumgardner, Adam Schefter, and Sam Webb reported that Harbaugh had inked a new 5-year deal.

Social media exploded with reaction as the news was finalized with a large amount of disdain and little credit because of how long this process took, the pure nature of retaining a head coach who is 0-5 against Ohio State, and the opportunity for Harbaugh to turn pro if he garnered interest.
