Paul Finebaum sent out a dire warning for one of the highest-paid coaches in college football.
The SEC pundit suggested Jim Harbaugh’s career could be in jeopardy if Michigan loses its next two games.
Finebaum thinks Harbaugh would lose all credibility in college football if the Wolverines lose to Penn State on the road and Notre Dame at home over the next two weekends.
“I don’t think he’ll be able to go anywhere in college football with credibility because the perception will be that he has no chance at being successful,” Finebaum said.

Harbaugh fell to 0-7 as an underdog during his time as Michigan’s head coach with a loss to Wisconsin earlier this season. Now the Wolverines enter their game against Penn State as the underdog – and will likely be underdogs when Notre Dame comes to town in two weeks.
If Harbaugh loses those two games, Finebaum thinks it could spell disaster for his legacy.
Penn State is a nine-point favorite heading into the game. The Nittany Lions and their fans will be decked out for the Whiteout Game – one of the best atmospheres in college football.
Can Jim Harbaugh right the ship and steal wins over two of the best programs in the country?
