The decision comes after days of speculations and rumors surrounding possible destinations for the Orange Bowl-winning front man. Reports had him linked to the University of Michigan, the Miami Dolphins, the San Francisco 49ers, and even returning to Stanford.
Reports this morning said Harbaugh had narrowed it down to the Niners and returning to Stanford, and shortly before 1:30 pm PT, the decision was announced as breaking news on ESPN.
Harbaugh will exit Stanford having turned around a program that won a single game in 2006, to winning the Discover Orange Bowl over Virginia Tech with a 40-12 drubbing. He will enter the NFL with a new project: Taking the 49ers from their 6-10 finish to a division championship and a playoff run.
The good news for Harbaugh? Just finished near .500 next season may be enough to get to the playoffs.
