Raiders are among the teams that are reportedly interested in Jim Harbaugh, Michigan coach

Jim Harbaugh achieved a new high in his time at Michigan in 2021. This could be Harbaugh’s launching pad to the NFL.

Harbaugh is being viewed as an important name in the coaching search for teams with head coaching positions, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported. Sources informed of the situation. Harbaugh is expected to be interested in by the Las Vegas Raiders. They are currently operating under interim head coach Rich Bisaccia, and could win their way into Sunday’s postseason.

Rapoport says Harbaugh is likely to be interested in the Raiders too, and there’s enough interest from both sides for it to make a possibility of a pairing.

Harbaugh has spent the past half-decade trying to make his college a top contender in college football. A possible dalliance would allow him to return to the NFL. His efforts led to the school’s first victory over Ohio State during his tenure and the first Big Ten Championship Game win. The Wolverines also reached the College Football Playoff semifinal, losing to Georgia.

Harbaugh may be interested in Raiders prospects, but it could also be leverage by Harbaugh who is in a better place than ever to get a Michigan raise in pay and security. This could be legit and Harbaugh could return to the NFL, where he led the San Francisco 49ers to Super Bowl glory in 2014. However, Harbaugh was forced to leave by an internal power struggle that led to him leaving in 2014.
