Detroit Free Press mixes up Harbaugh brothers
I will be the first to admit that I used to mix up the Harbaugh brothers all the time. When Jim first took the head coaching job with the San Francisco 49ers, I accidentally referred to him as John more than once. But I never mixed up their faces. The same cannot be said for the Detroit Free Press.
On Monday morning, the front page of the Detroit Free Press indicated that Baltimore Ravens head coach John Harbaugh is set to become the next head coach at Michigan.

The Free Press apologized for the gaffe.
We've got a serious "Case of the Mondays." Our deepest apologies, folks. We'll have the right one tomorrow, promise. pic.twitter.com/ldTdKz2UwJ

Don’t worry, Wolverines fans. The last we heard it is still Jim Harbaugh who is expected to take Ann Arbor by storm, and this is when it may become official.
It should be noted that the Ravens snuck into the playoffs on Sunday with a win over the Browns and a Chargers’ loss to the Chiefs. That would be kind of awkward if John Harbaugh left his team in the middle of a postseason run to take his brother’s job.
