Jim Harbaugh has insisted he’s staying put, but that won’t stop an NFL team from trying to lure him back to the league.
According to Pro Football Talk, which cited an unidentified league source, the Jets are planning to go after the Michigan coach after the season ends.
It had been rumored that at least one unidentified NFL team “plans to make a run at” Harbaugh in 2019.
The report noted it’s unclear what offseason changes the Jets will make, but the team could make Harbaugh an offer in excess of the $7 million he already earns at Ann Arbor.
Still, Harbaugh wanted to be on record when he said he has no intention to leave the Wolverines.
“This is a choreographed message that comes up at this time every year before signing day,” Harbaugh said earlier this month. “It’s people spreading messages to further their own personal agenda. But I’m on record right here, right now: I’m not going anywhere. I’m staying at Michigan. We have big plans here, and there’s a lot we want to accomplish.”
Additional teams that could be looking to make a coaching change include the Packers, Browns, Buccaneers, Bengals and Broncos, among others.
