Jim Harbaugh definitely heading to Michigan – who’ll coach the 49ers tomorrow?

He used Twitter to let the world know his feelings about Greg Roman, and tonight 49ers Team Spokesman Anthony Davis gave “Respect” to the man who called his Roman tweets “misguided.”

You don’t have to Google. Just click the 49ers tab up top, or the following link: Jim Harbaugh is going to Michigan. Or check out the following tweet, since it’s guaranteed to be correct.

Dave Feldman is tight with Harbaugh — the CSN Bay Area anchor even went on Harbaugh’s most recent offseason trip to Peru.  After Bam’s tweets, I made a snarky comment about how Harbaugh would coach tomorrow’s game while wearing Michigan gear. But there’s no way the 49ers can let him coach tomorrow. It would make Jed York and Trent Baalke look soooo weak. Nope, it’s probably time for a repeat of Week 17, 2010: Jim Tomsula.

In a way, this makes Harbaugh’s repeated claims that he’s focused on the next game, and the next game only, look pretty disingenuous. Then you think about all the leaks from the front office (seriously, Jay Glazer was reporting that Harbaugh wouldn’t be back after this season on a near-weekly basis)  and it’s easy to see why Harbaugh wouldn’t mind sticking it to the 49ers as quickly and stridently as possible.

I’ll be heading to tomorrow’s game, and it should be interesting. Will Tomsula go with two shirt buttons unbuttoned, or will he go even deeper into the chestal region? Will the fans — the ones who actually sit in their seats, anyway — bring signs in support of the team’s most successful head coach since George Seifert? 

The Harbaugh era is over. It was wildly entertaining, painful, comical, awkward, and win-heavy. The man who steps into his position on a full-time basis next year isn’t going to have the benefit of a honeymoon period. If the 49ers falter, things are going to get nasty. Not that they weren’t contentious throughout 2014.
