Jim Harbaugh has been chosen as the new head coach of the San Francisco 49ers.

He said that as long as he could remember, he admired the late Bill Walsh, the Hall of Fame coach, one of his mentors and how Walsh made the very successful leap from Stanford to the 49ers.

The successful Stanford Cardinal coach moves to the NFL after four years on the Palo Alto, California campus.

The former NFL quarterback with Chicago, Indianapolis, Baltimore, San Diego, Detroit and Carolina, takes over for the fired Mike Singletary. Media outlets are reporting that his contract is for $25 million over five years.

Harbaugh is taking over a 49ers team that has missed the playoffs for eight straight seasons.

The Stanford Cardinal, finished the season 12-1 and set a school record for wins following a 40-12 win over Virginia Tech in the Orange Bowl. Andrew Luck, the Orange Bowl MVP is returning for another season, but Harbaugh said it was time to move his own career forward.

Stanford quarterback Andrew Luck decided to finish his college studies and get his degree in his 20′s rather than wait until after an NFL career where he would have to return to college in his 30′s or even 40′s.

He is passing up the possibility of being the NFL’s #1 pick in the 2011 draft.

Luck ended the suspense of whether he was staying or going before the deadline when underclassmen in college have to declare for the NFL draft.

Luck, who sat out his first season as a redshirt and has two years of eligibility remaining, but is on schedule to graduate next spring.

The Heisman Trophy finalist says he is committed to earning his degree in architectural design and will earn his degree in the spring of 2012.

Luck was the runner-up this football season to Auburn’s Cam Newton for the Heisman Trophy and will be one of the favorites for the 2011 award.

Luck ended the season on a high note, completing 18 of 23 passes for 287 yards and four touchdowns as the 5th-ranked Cardinal defeated #12 Virginia Tech in the Orange Bowl, 40-12.

Stanford ends the year at 12-1.

Luck is the son of former NFL quarterback Oliver Luck, is one of the reasons Stanford has gone from a one-win also-ran in 2006, to one of the top teams in the country. He has led the Cardinal to a 20-5 record in his 25 career starts, missing only the Sun Bowl last year against Oklahoma because of a broken right index finger. Stanford loss the game to the Sooners.
