Jim Harbaugh Thinks He's Overpaid - Watch

Jim Harbaugh is overpaid. Just ask him.

The first-year head coach, who joined Michigan in December after four seasons with the San Francisco 49ers, spoke with Charlie LeDuff of FOX Detroit 2, explaining his decision to return to Ann Arbor.

When Harbaugh was questioned about being worth the $5-million salary he’s due to make annually, he was rather modest in reply.

“No,” he said plainly.

“I like making a buck just like the next guy. I’m not doing five times as much work as somebody else or doing more work than someone who’s not the head football coach at the University of Michigan so to answer your question honestly I would have to say no.”

He also elaborated on his motivation for re-joining the program he played four seasons with from 1983-86.

“The decision was from the heart. I grew up here. Went to school here. Was a student athlete here at Michigan and I have a great love for Michigan.”

The Wolverines finished 5-7 in 2014.
