While Notre Dame Fighting Irish fans are still saying goodbye to noted coward Jim Harbaugh as he heads out the door to the NFL, they may not have to wait long to see who their hated rivals are hiring in his place.

One report after another started circulating on Wednesday evening that the Wolverines already have Harbaugh's replacement in Ann Arbor. It turns out it will almost certainly be the same guy who led the team while Harbaugh sat out his two different suspensions this season.

Sherrone Moore is expected to officially be "the man" no later than Saturday. It appears that his four games this season were always going to be a kind of tryout to see if he could handle the job when Harbaugh eventually ran away from all his NCAA troubles.

Barring a turn of events that would be quite surprising, it looks like he passed the tryout with flying colors. The question now is whether or not there's any chance the NCAA can tie Moore to the same cheating scandal that had Jim Harbaugh run away with his tail tucked between his legs.
