Colin Cowherd: Jim Harbaugh Is Worth Every Penny Of His $9 Million Contract

David Hookstead | Reporter

Fox Sports pundit Colin Cowherd gave a passionate defense of Jim Harbaugh making $9 million a year to coach the Michigan Wolverines football team.

“Every coach in 2016 that would get that job at Michigan would mostly get $3 million. So what Harbaugh is really costing you, dollars above replacement, is $2 million a year. Let me ask you Michigan fans, you think he’s worth $2 million in a stadium that seats 110,000 and was nearly half full at the end of Brady Hoke?” Cowherd said on his FS1 show “The Herd.” (SLIDESHOW: Get College Football Started Right With These Top 25 Ranked Cheerleaders)

He concluded with, “Harbaugh is worth every penny!”

Harbaugh was revealed to be the highest paid coach in college football with his $9 million a year salary, which is more than $2 million more than second place Alabama coach Nick Saban.

He currently has the Wolverines rolling through their season and off to an impressive 7-0 start.
