Former Michigan, NFL WR Aamni Toomer rips Jim Harbaugh

Former Michigan wide receiver Amani Toomer has not been impressed by Jim Harbaugh’s first three seasons at Michigan.

Toomer, who played for the Wolverines from 1992-1995 before having a 13-year NFL career with the New York Giants, said he is “really upset” with Harbaugh’s performance at Michigan in an interview with Chat Sports over the weekend. Toomer pointed to Harbaugh’s 1-5 mark against Ohio State and Michigan State as one of the main reasons for his disapproval.

“I’m really upset with how Harbaugh has been at Michigan — 1-5 vs. Michigan State and Ohio State,” Toomer said. “Only beat Michigan State once last year, the rest of the times it’s a loss. I think he’s not performed as well as I thought he should, hasn’t turned the program around. Him and Brady Hoke are neck-and-neck with the records, maybe a game or two off.”

Toomer added that Harbaugh — who is 28-10 in three seasons at Michigan, has a .699 winning percentage as a college coach and took the San Francisco 49ers to three consecutive NFC Championship games — is a “guy that hasn’t won anywhere.”

Michigan went 8-4 in the 2017 regular season, Harbaugh’s worst record so far at his alma mater.

“The fact that we’re mired in mediocrity and accepting it, that’s not what I think of Michigan,” Toomer added. “I don’t think of Michigan as an 8-3 team and being excited because we have Michael Jordan’s shoes. I don’t care about shoes, I don’t care about going to Rome, I don’t care about any of that stuff. We are an also-ran team in the Big Ten now, and it’s embarrassing.”
