The Jets are broadly anticipated to have a head coach opening after this season, and it’s a yr the place there aren’t so many apparent candidates within the ranks. So, it shouldn’t be terribly stunning that Jim Harbaugh is a reputation that has come up for that job.
Mike Florio reviews that the Jets are “planning to make a run” at Harbaugh, including that “[t]he pondering is that the Jets plan to make Harbaugh a monetary supply he can’t refuse, properly in extra of the $7 million he earns at Ann Arbor.”
It’s fascinating to consider. Mike McCarthy is a reputation that has come up quite a few instances the previous couple weeks in reference to the Jets; you’d must assume for those who took a ballot of the fan base a majority would like Harbaugh.
Nonetheless, I’d personally be surprised if Harbaugh leaves Michigan, even when the Jets do again up an 18-wheeler full of money. Harbaugh is Zero-Four in opposition to Ohio State, and the Wolverines haven’t even made a Huge Ten title sport, not to mention sniffed the School Soccer Playoff. To go away his alma mater now can be to willfully admit defeat.
(For what it’s value, and coach’s phrases don’t all the time imply an entire lot this time of yr, Harbaugh has been on file that he’s staying at Michigan.)
You may’t fault the Jets for making an attempt and there are a variety of enticing facets about their job — massive market, Sam Darnold on a rookie contract for 3 extra years, mountains of cap area candidate as fascinating as Harbaugh might presumably additionally leverage management over — however I simply maintain coming again to the truth that there received’t ever cease being strong NFL jobs obtainable to Harbaugh and that proper now it’d be a extremely unhealthy search for him to depart Michigan with out having achieved something notable there.
