Jim Harbaugh to the NFL? Report indicates Michigan coach would be open to pro return
Jim Harbaugh and the Michigan Wolverines just made an incredible run to the College Football Playoff, beating Ohio State for the first time in Harbaugh’s tenure and winning the B1G title game before getting crushed by Georgia in the CFP semifinals.
Has Harbaugh seen the writing on the wall as far as what his ceiling is at Michigan?
According to The Athletic’s Bruce Feldman, Harbaugh is perhaps tempted to make a return to the NFL ranks:

Harbaugh, of course, has had success at the NFL level. In 4 years with the San Francisco 49ers, Harbaugh went 44-19-1, leading the 49ers to the NFC title and a Super Bowl XLVII loss following the 2012 season.
His brother, John, who beat him in that Super Bowl, is still the head coach of the Baltimore Ravens.
