NFL team to bring Jim Harbaugh in for second interview

All of the hype in the NFL involving Michigan football head coach Jim Harbaugh has centered around the Los Angeles Chargers, but another team appears to have growing interest in the nine-year Wolverines headman.

Earlier this week, the Atlanta Falcons interviewed Harbaugh for their open post after firing Arthur Smith, but they appeared to be closing in on former New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick. Belichick not only interviewed twice, but reportedly had dinner with team owner Arthur Blank.

However, according to NFL insider Tom Pelissero, the Falcons intend to go a second round with Harbaugh; they plan to bring him in for another interview next week.

Harbaugh appears intent on testing the NFL waters this cycle while Michigan continues to work on extending his contract. Though many believe he’s coached his last game in Ann Arbor, an NFL team would have to officially offer him — while likely giving him significant control — for him to depart for a second stint in the pro ranks.
