Told them tentatively yes, wait until season end at Stanford.

So Michigan waited their bowl game to fire Rich Rod.

Unfortunately, that season didn't end until Jan 1 - at which point, the 49ers had an opening and were paying somewhat more than Michigan.

He bit on the 49ers offer - and left M with Hoke in the middle of January.

I doubt Michigan was going to take that chance again - they probably got really great assurances from Harbaugh the day after they fired Hoke.
