Harbaugh says ‘Enemies & Jive Turkeys’ Conspiring against Michigan, Creating NFL Coaching Rumors: Rumors are swirling, as they usually do this time of year, that Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh is considering a jump back to a NFL head coaching gig. What does Harbaugh make of this? Mark Snyder reports that Harbaugh said Tuesday, “I’m not leaving Michigan…Not even considering it. A lot of this talk is coming from our enemies, from coaches, you know the names. You probably know the names of the top three I’m referring to. They like to say that to the media. They like to tell that to the recruits, to their families, try to manipulate them into going to some other school besides Michigan…We know them as jive turkeys. Say it like it is. that’s the way it is.” Harbaugh is 0-2 coaching against Ohio State, and 1-3 overall against Michigan State and Ohio State.
