The elephant inMichigan football’sliving room will remain there for a bit longer.

Jim Harbaugh confirmed Monday he still hasn’t signed a contract extension, meaning he will enter this season as the only Power Five coach with fewer than two years remaining on his deal. Harbaugh said in the summer that a new agreement was being negotiated earlier this year, but that those discussions had been tabled since the onset of the coronavirus pandemic.

Harbaugh explained in July the contract wasn’t high on the priority list. And on Monday he maintained that was still the case.
