UPDATE: Source: Michigan lands Harbaugh as new coach

Posted: Updated:
ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- Former San Francisco 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh has agreed to become the new coach at Michigan, according to a person with knowledge of the discussions.

A deal has been signed, according to the person who spoke Monday to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because there was no announcement from the school or Harbaugh.

Harbaugh didn't immediately respond to calls or text messages. Multiple reports say the school will announce Tuesday that the former Michigan quarterback is replacing the fired Brady Hoke.

The 51-year-old Harbaugh coached the 49ers to three straight NFC championship games. After the 49ers slipped to 8-8 this season and missed the playoffs, he parted ways with the team in what both sides called a mutual decision.

ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- Former San Francisco 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh and Michigan are in discussions about the school's football coaching vacancy, according to a person with knowledge of the talks.

The person spoke Monday on condition of anonymity because there has been no announcement from the school or Harbaugh. Multiple reports citing unidentified sources say the school will announce Tuesday that the former Michigan quarterback is replacing the fired Brady Hoke.

Harbaugh coached the 49ers to three straight NFC championship games, losing the 2013 Super Bowl to a Baltimore Ravens team coached by his brother, John. The 49ers slipped to 8-8 this season and missed the playoffs. He parted ways with the 49ers on Sunday.
