ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh said Wednesday he was closing in on a contract extension before coping with the COVID-19 pandemic became a top priority for all involved in the discussions.
"There's bigger fish to fry for our athletic director, or our administration, me as a coach," Harbaugh said during an interview on Zoom. "It hasn't been on the top of the priority list. I would expect something, that there would be an announcement at some time."
Michigan athletic director Warde Manuel has said more than once that he wants Harbaugh to lead the Wolverines until he chooses to retire from coaching.
