Jim Harbaugh shoots down NFL coaching rumors, plans to be back at Michigan in 2023

Every single year that Jim Harbaugh has coached Michigan football, there have been rumors that he might dash to the NFL.

Except for 2020, when the Wolverines were 2-4.

But last year, there was some juice to the rumors,

as Harbaugh interviewed with the Minnesota Vikings before ultimately returning to Ann Arbor.

Well, those rumors are circulating again,

one day after Michigan won the Big Ten and on the day that it was named the 2-seed in the College Football Playoff.

On Sunday evening, when Harbaugh met with reporters via Zoom as part of the Vrbo Fiesta Bowl introductory press conference,

he responded to the NFL.com report that he was being vetted for a return to the league,

saying that unless Michigan decides to part ways with him, he’s not going anywhere.

“Well, it’s a lot of that time of the year type of speculation but I think no man knows the future,” Harbaugh said.

“We’ve done a good job and people are pleased with the job that we’ve done here at Michigan.

They’re gonna be very happy to learn that we’ll be back enthusiastically coaching the Wolverines in 2023.

And for those people that don’t approve of the job we’ve done or would rather see somebody else coaching here,

I think they’ll be most likely disappointed to learn and we’ll be back coaching the Wolverines in 2023.”
