ESPN is reporting that a deal for Jim Harbaugh to become its next head coach is done and that a news conference is scheduled for Tuesday.

Interim athletic director Jim Hackett and other officials from the school met with Harbaugh in California on Sunday night after he officially parted ways with the San Francisco 49ers. The agreement reached ended a nearly monthlong coaching search in which virtually any conclusion other than landing Harbaugh would have been deemed a disappointment in Ann Arbor.

Details about Harbaugh's contract weren't immediately available, but reports earlier this month suggested Michigan offered a six-year contract worth at least $48 million.
Harbaugh spent part of his childhood in Ann Arbor and played quarterback at Michigan from 1983 to 1986 before a long NFL career.
