LANSING, Mich. (WILX) - USA Today is reporting its annual ranking of division one college football coaches salaries, and let’s just say times have changed for Michigan’s Jim Harbaugh.

He has fallen from a top five listing to #32 for this season, 11th in the Big Ten, and $1.5 million a year behind Michigan State’s Mel Tucker. 

Who would have thought that?

So for the $4 million annual deal that Harbaugh has now renegotiated, maybe he’s a bargain. He has a big winning record - even though he hasn’t beaten Ohio State.

If he finally does, perhaps he would become one of the biggest bargains in all of college football before his coaching days end.
