Report: Michigan HC Jim Harbaugh Could Be Mulling Leaving Michigan, Returning to NFL

Michigan just had one of its best seasons ever. Despite its season-ending bitterly with a 34-11 loss to Georgia in the College Football Playoff loss to Georgia, the Wolverines finished the season by tying their season record for wins with 12, winning the Big Ten for the first time since 2003. So there were indeed a lot more positives then there were negatives.

The future looks bright, too. If Jim Harbaugh leaves, however, things would get a lot hairier in Ann Arbor.

Harbaugh has been coaching at his Alma Mater since 2015, and before that, led the San Francisco 49ers for four seasons. Naturally, rumors of his return to the NFL have been in the air from time to time in the years since his return to college, and now, they’re back.

Bruce Feldman of Fox Sports and the Athletic tweeted that sources “from both the NFL side and at Michigan “have told the Athletic that Harbaugh could be interested in a return to the pros.”

Feldman’s article listed the Las Vegas Raiders and Chicago Bears are two potential landing spots should Harbaugh set his heart on the professional ranks. The Raiders, then in Oakland, were the organization where Harbaugh started his coaching career in the early 2000s.

Harbaugh is 61-24 overall at Michigan and 42-17 in the Big Ten.
