Will Jim Harbaugh Really Leave the University of Michigan for the Los Angeles Rams?
Former Los Angeles Rams head coach Jeff Fisher hadn't even begun to clear out his office when a hot rumor surfaced about a possible replacement, University of Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh.
Harbaugh, a 'Michigan Man' who played quarterback in the early '80s, returned to Ann Arbor in 2015 after 4 seasons coaching the San Francisco 49ers.
Could Harbaugh really give up on the Wolverines after just two seasons?
The Ravens Wire blog on MSN reports that Josh McDaniels, Mike Shanahan and Jon Gruden are leading candidates to replace Fisher in LA. As for the Michigan coach,
Harbaugh, however, would be a bit of a wild card and an unexpected candidate to return to the NFL after just two seasons with Michigan.
But let's not forget that Harbaugh coached the San Francisco 49ers to the Super Bowl in 2013 and then a 12-win season the following year.
Note, the blog was written on Sunday December 11, one day before Fisher was released by the Rams.
The question for Michigan fans is will Harbaugh's name come up with any NFL coaching vacancy or is there something special about the Los Angeles situation?
