John Harbaugh on his brother, Jim: ‘He loves Michigan but he loves the NFL, too’

Much of the football world — college and pro — has been speculating about Michigan football head coach Jim Harbaugh since the national championship game. Will he stay in Ann Arbor or will he try his hand again in the NFL?

Harbaugh has interviewed with the Los Angeles Chargers and the Atlanta Falcons, while the Wolverines have insisted they’re continuing to work on his contract extension.

As far as Harbaugh’s future plans are concerned, one person close to him, his brother John Harbaugh, doesn’t seem to know what he’ll do.

The elder Harbaugh is the head coach of the Baltimore Ravens, and he said on Thursday that while he doesn’t know what his younger brother will do, he knows Michigan is doing what it can to retain him.

“I don’t know what he’s going to do. I’m not sure what Jim’s plan are,” Harbaugh said. “Whatever he does will be what’s best for his family.

“I know Michigan’s been a joy for him to go back to his alma mater. His family loves it there, the players love him, the coaches, the fan base. I would think the president and the board of trustees would be doing everything they can to try and keep them. That would be priority No. 1 if I was them.

“He loves Michigan, but the NFL — he loves the NFL, too, so we’ll have to see.”
