What is Jim Harbaugh’s NFL record? Everything you need to know about Chargers new coach

Jim Harbaugh is returning to the NFL after agreeing to become the next coach of the Los Angeles Chargers. He most recently led the Michigan Wolverines to their first national title since 1997 with a 34-13 win over the Washington Huskies.

Harbaugh returns to the NFL more than a decade after a four-year stint with the San Francisco 49ers. The former NFL quarterback will be the Chargers’ third head coach in the last five years after Brandon Staley was fired in mid-December. He inherits a team he played for in the NFL and is currently led by franchise quarterback Justin Herbert on offense and multiple star players on defense.

Harbaugh became the head coach of the 49ers on Jan. 7, 2011 after a successful four-year stint with Stanford. He turned San Francisco around immediately; the 49ers went from 6-10 in 2010 to 13-3 in 2011 with a trip to the NFC Championship game.

Over four years with the 49ers, Harbaugh compiled a 44-19-1 record in the regular season and went 5-3 in the playoffs. San Francisco lost to the Baltimore Ravens – coached by Harbaugh’s brother John – in Super Bowl XLVII during Harbaugh’s second season with the team.

The 49ers made the NFC championship game in each of Harbaugh’s first three seasons, losing to the New York Giants in 2011, beating the Atlanta Falcons in 2012, and losing to the Seattle Seahawks in 2013. The Giants and Seahawks both won the Super Bowl in those seasons.
