Another day, and more Harbaugh talk. Multiple outlets, including Sports Illustrated, have reported that Harbaugh is “entertaining” the idea of making a move to the NFL. So, where is he going to go? It’s what everyone is talking about. And, just to be fair, if Mel Tucker was entertaining NFL offers – or offers from other college teams – we’d be all over that, too, but he obviously recently signed a major contract with MSU.

  • The teams

    Two teams that are often mentioned in regards to Harbaugh are the Bears and Raiders. But, after the surprise of the Dolphins’ Brian Flores getting let go during “Black Monday,” many have started to speculate Harbaugh’s team could be Miami.

  • The Dolphins?

    It has long been rumored that Dolphins owner Stephen Ross has wanted to bring Harbaugh in. Regarding the Dolphins opening, “I bet it is Harbaugh,” ESPN NFL Draft analyst Matt Miller said from his conversation with a source (via Sports Illustrated).

    But, it appears to be a no-go.

    “I’m not going to be the person who takes Jim Harbaugh away from Michigan,” Ross said Monday, via Joe Schad of the Palm Beach Post. “I hope he stays there. He’s a great coach.”

  • Some fans wanted Harbaugh at the Dolphins- and they're mad

  • More buzz

    If you don’t believe Harbaugh is serious about heading to the NFL this time around, check this out. The father of Darrius Clemons, one of Harbaugh’s recruits, recently stated that Harbaugh told Clemons, amid recruiting time, that he was going to “entertain” returning to the NFL (via Sports Illustrated).

  • The Bears?

    Several reports, including one from Bruce Feldman of The Athletic, have Harbaugh heading to the Bears. Read more about that here.

  • The Raiders?

    Other reports say he’ll head to the Raiders. “Harbaugh is very well liked by Raiders owner Mark Davis, league sources said, beginning his coaching career as a quarterback coach there for the Raiders in 2002,” according to CBS Sports.
