Bruce Feldman of TheAthletic.com cites sources from both the NFL and Michigan in his Tuesday report that Harbaugh “Might be tempted” to leave his alma mater for an NFL coaching job. Feldman notes one source said, “I think it’s real,” about Harbaugh’s potential interest in the NFL.
Harbaugh led the Wolverines to a 12-2 record in 2021, with Michigan falling to Georgia 34-11 in last Friday’s College Football Playoff Semifinal game at the Orange Bowl.
As noted in Feldman’s report, there’s been plenty of speculation that Harbaugh could land with the Raiders. San Francisco won the NFC West in each of Harbaugh’s first two years. Harbaugh played seven seasons for Chicago at quarterback from 1987-1993, compiling a 35-30 record.
