Michigan’s head coach has no plans on leaving Ann Arbor, though.
Jim Harbaugh was asked after Michigan’s Outback Bowl loss to South Carolina if he had coached his last game with the Wolverines.
There are rumors about Harbaugh potentially leaving for the NFL basically every offseason, after all.
Harbaugh, though, was quick to respond to the question.
“No,” he told reporters.
It appears he was telling the truth, too.
Sports Illustrated NFL insider Peter King reports that multiple NFL franchises expressed interest in exploring the idea of hiring Harbaugh, however they found out that he will be staying put in Ann Arbor, Mich.
Two teams were interested in exploring Harbaugh. Found the same thing. https://t.co/XleNU9PDxo

The NFL rumors will likely never go away for Harbaugh, but he does appear to be dedicated to Michigan right now.
The 2018 season will be a big one for the Wolverines, too. Michigan will enter the season with College Football Playoff hopes and an elite quarterback in Shea Patterson (assuming he’s eligible). There can be no more disappointments.
