Harbaugh is 61-24 as a head coach in his 7 seasons at Michigan. In the NFL, Harbaugh coached 4 seasons with the San Francisco 49ers, going 44-19-1 in the regular season and 5-3 in the postseason. Harbaugh was NFL Coach of the Year in 2011 when he guided the 49ers to a 13-3 regular-season record. In 2012, San Francisco made it to the Super Bowl, falling to the Baltimore Ravens, coached by John Harbaugh, Jim’s brother.
Harbaugh, 58, had a long NFL career as a player, from 1987 to 2001. Last week, Harbaugh was asked about the NFL coaching rumors, simply saying “It’s a little more enjoyable this year compared to the rumors last year, so.”
Jon Gruden resigned as the Raiders on Oct. 11 amid a scandal regarding emails he previously sent to Washington Football Team officials. Rich Bisaccia stepped in as interim head coach. The Raiders made this year’s NFL Playoffs but lost to the Cincinnati Bengals in this past weekend’s Wild Card round.
