    Jim Harbaugh is returning to his Alma Mater to be the next Head Coach of the University of Michigan's football program. The former NFL coach will become one of the five highest paid coaches in college football. With all the headlines, expectations in Ann Arbor are high.

    Last year, the Wolverines finished with a losing record. This marked the third straight year of declining returns under Brady Hoke. In Hoke's first year Michigan went 10-2 followed by records of 8-5, 7-6 and finally 5-7 in 2014.

    This is not the first time Harbaugh has taken over a rebuilding project. In his tenure with the University of San Diego, Harbaugh produced winning records of 7-4 and 11-1 twice.

    At Stanford, Harbaugh turned around a program that hadn't had a winning season since 2001. In four years with the Cardinal Harbaugh went 4-8, 5-7, 8-5 and 12-1.

    Of course, Harbaugh's success was not limited to the college ranks. With the 49ers, Harbaugh had a record of 49-22-1 in four seasons and led San Francisco to the Super Bowl in 2012.

    Again, expectations are high in Michigan.

    How many wins will Harbaugh have in his first year with the Wolverines?

    Total Wins – Michigan Wolverines in the 2015-16 Regular Season
    • Over/Under: 8.5

    Our friends at Bovada.lv have set the line at 8.5 wins. The over is -130, meaning that if bettors believe Michigan can win nine games they have to lay $130 to win $100.

    Will Michigan return to national relevance or will a tough Big Ten slate including games against Michigan State, Ohio State and Penn State derail Harbaugh's homecoming?

    Only seven months until our college football preview comes out with projected win totals for every team.
