There has been talk that Jim Harbaugh would be pursued by an NFL team this year, and now we know who that team is.
According to Pro Football Talk’s Mike Florio, the New York Jets are planning to make a run at Harbaugh after the season ends. Florio says the Jets may plan to make Harbaugh a financial offer he can’t refuse. Harbaugh is currently earning $7 million per season at Michigan.
The pressure was on Harbaugh entering the college football season, his fourth at Michigan. After consecutive strong seasons to begin his career as the Wolverines’ head coach, Michigan slipped to 8-5 last season before rebounding to 10-2 this season and being part of the College Football Playoff conversation.
