Jim Harbaugh is reportedly considering a return to the NFL, 7 years after mutually parting ways with the San Francisco 49ers following 3 playoff trips in 4 seasons and an appearance in Super Bowl XLVII.

With Michigan coming off its first College Football Playoff appearance in school history, Harbaugh figures to be in very high demand, with 7 NFL teams currently with head coaching vacancies. The 8th, the Las Vegas Raiders, saw special teams coordinator Rich Bisaccia take the reins on an interim basis after the firing of Jon Gruden but have yet to make a decision of whether to drop the interim tag.

If the Raiders look elsewhere for a permanent head coach, Harbaugh will be a target. And, according to The Athletic and FOX Sports’ Bruce Feldman, “if Harbaugh is offered the Raiders head coaching job, he’d take it,” according to Feldman’s sources within the Wolverines football program.

As Feldman notes, Harbaugh is a former Raiders assistant, serving as the team’s quarterbacks coach in 2002 and 2003 after his retirement from the NFL. Also, Harbaugh and his wife, Sarah, met in the city.

It’s far from a done deal that Harbaugh will leave for the NFL, Feldman’s sources pointed out.

“(They know) Harbaugh can be hard to read,” he said. “Their hunches could be wrong — but they also know he’s never coached anywhere longer than four years prior to his seven years and running in Ann Arbor. They’ve each believed that he, at some point, would want to coach in the NFL again.”
