Author and Michigan alum John U. Bacon’s latest book entitled “Endzone: The Rise, Fall, and Return of Michigan Football” chronicles the tenure of former Michigan AD Dave Brandon and head coach Brady Hoke and looks ahead to the Wolverine program under Jim Harbaugh. Bacon is doing an AMA on Reddit today and dropped a very interesting piece of info on the coaching search that produced Harbaugh.
According to Bacon, Harbaugh was always the choice but that three NFL coaches expressed interest in the position. It’s unclear if Harbaugh is one of the three or if there were three others besides him.

Bacon also dropped some other tasty tidbits in his AMA, saying he thinks it will take three or four years for Harbaugh to have Michigan in the conversation for a CFP berth and further confirming that Lloyd Carr isn’t a fan of Les Miles.
