The Las Vegas Raiders are reportedly eyeing up Jim Harbaugh.
According to Ian Rapoport, the Raiders and the Michigan head coach are “expected” to have interest in each other. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

As I said before, I’m not sure why Harbaugh would want to leave Michigan right now. He just got them to their first ever playoff appearance and also beat OSU.
Michigan is the best they’ve been in a very long time. It doesn’t make a ton of sense to cut and run at this moment.
However, if Harbaugh feels that there’s a concrete ceiling with the Wolverines and he’s met it, then he might ditch out to the NFL.
If he feels he simply can’t win a national title with Michigan, it would make sense for him to leave. Add in the fact he loves the spotlight and being in Las Vegas would be a great fit and it’s not hard to see why he might take the job.
All I know for sure is there is going to be a lot of movement in the coming days all over the league. It should be fun to see how it all shakes out.
