Jim Harbaugh ended the 2018 regular season on a pretty down note, getting blown out by Ohio State, and Michigan is ending its postseason on an even more down note, as Florida is absolutely dominating the Wolverines in the Peach Bowl.

Times are tough for Harbaugh and his program.

Michigan entered the 2018 season with incredibly high hopes and was seen as a legitimate College Football Playoff contender as late as November.

However, things have gone south - quickly.

Michigan will now finish the season with back-to-back blowout losses on big stages. This was supposed to be the year Harbaugh delivered some kind of championship and it's clearly not happening.

FOX Sports 1's Colin Cowherd has been a big supporter of Harbaugh throughout his career and he remains one. However, he thinks Harbaugh could be better off somewhere else...

"Michigan will not find a better HC than Jim Harbaugh. They were 10-2 before today. There are , however, geographic realities in college football. Go to Rivals. It’s right there. It should be noted that these limitations don’t exist in the NFL. Happy holidays," he tweeted.

Harbaugh has been linked to multiple NFL jobs this month, including the Green Bay Packers and the New York Jets.

Michigan's head coach says he will remain with the Wolverines, though.

"This is a choreographed message that comes up at this time every year before signing day," Harbaugh told ESPN earlier this month. "It's people spreading messages to further their own personal agenda.

"But I'm on record right here, right now: I'm not going anywhere. I'm staying at Michigan. We have big plans here, and there's a lot we want to accomplish."
