Jim Harbaugh is once again linked to NFL jobs such as the Carolina Panthers, Indianapolis Colts and the Denver Broncos. There was a report that came out Monday that said Harbaugh would bolt to the NFL if given an offer.

The allegations are supposedly minor, but the investigation also hinges on how the football program responds.

The report says one of the allegations includes an analyst coaching the players on the field and another involves text messages that would violate NCAA rules.

The school source believes that the NCAA violations are relatively minor infractions – one includes an analyst coaching players and another involves text messages that violated NCAA rules.

It is unclear what the punishment from the NCAA would be.
