Las Vegas Raiders are searching for a big name in the NCAA or NFL to fill their vacant head coach position
Although they were the first team in the league to fire their head coach this year, the Las Vegas Raiders appear to be serious about finding their next head coaching candidate.
Rich Bisaccia has been handling business well enough and could still become the permanent replacement, but the Raiders’ front office appears to be looking for another big name to take over the head coaching office instead.
Ian Rapoport claims that Jim Harbaugh, the head coach of the Las Vegas Raiders, and the Raiders appear to share a mutual interest going into the offseason. The actual search for a head coach in Las Vegas will include interviews and a panel. However, the Michigan Wolverines’ coach appears to be the first to be mentioned.
Jim Harbaugh will likely have a higher return on the NFL than Jon Gruden.
Jim Harbaugh is the Michigan Wolverines’ head coach since 2015. He has a record of 61-24. Harbaugh’s head coaching career actually began at Stanford, where he was the head coach from 2007-10. In that time, Harbaugh was 29-21. This brings his college head coaching record up to an impressive 90-40.
Harbaugh spent four years as a coach with the San Fransisco 49ers between these two coaching jobs.
Harbaugh led the 49ers to three consecutive NFC Championship Games. They even made it to the Super Bowl in 2012. Harbaugh won 49 games including the playoffs in just four seasons. That’s a record for any coach to achieve in four seasons.
Jim Harbaugh won the coach of the year award for 2011 making his return in the NFL even more exciting.
