The GM Shuffle breaks down the Chargers’ big move to hire Michigan HC Jim Harbaugh

Michael Lombardi is joined by Femi Abebefe to discuss the latest NFL head coaching hires — including Jim Harbaugh.

He’s baaaaack.

The Chargers announced on Wednesday that they hired former San Francisco 49ers and current Michigan Wolverines head coach Jim Harbaugh to be the franchise’s next head coach. Harbaugh replaces Brandon Staley, who was fired mid-season.

It marks the return of the enigmatic — and frankly entertaining — head coach after he departed the Niners in 2014.

But is it the right move?

Michael Lombardi and Femi Abebefe discuss this big-time hire, along with the other coaching moves on today’s episode of the GM Shuffle.

Listen to the full episode below.
