NFL team speaks to Jim Harbaugh, is he actually interested?

The day the Michigan football was announced to the College Football Playoff semifinal in the Vrbo Fiesta Bowl, head coach Jim Harbaugh stated he and his staff would return to Ann Arbor to coach the Wolverines in 2022. However, he left one caveat: No one knows what the future holds.

No one knows, indeed. Multiple teams are reportedly interested in luring Harbaugh from the college ranks. While that’s been the case throughout most of his tenure at Michigan, he never reciprocated that interest until last year. There are mixed reports regarding his desire to return to the NFL, but The Athletic reported on Monday that if he’s offered an NFL job, he’ll take it. While that didn’t happen last year, one team has had a conversation with Harbaugh in recent weeks, per a report.

The Carolina Panthers have a job opening after dismissing Matt Rhule, who is now at Nebraska. And they’ve reportedly had a conversation with Harbaugh.

Again, we’ll see what happens. Harbaugh seems to have an itch to scratch, but he has spent the past year indicating he doesn’t plan to pursue such an opportunity.
