Kirk Herbstreit: "There Are Rumors That Jim Harbaugh May Leave Michigan And Go To The NFL"

Kirk Herbstreit discusses Jim Harbaugh on College GameDay.

ESPN College GameDay analyst Kirk Herbstreit dropped an interesting tidbit on Saturday, suggesting that there are rumors that Jim Harbaugh may leave Michigan and head back to the NFL.

Herbstreit's comment came in passing when discussing the coaching carousel in college football. Desmond Howard responded about a minute later, telling Herbstreit that there's "no chance" that Harbaugh leaves Michigan.

It's hard to know whether Herbstreit knows something or he's just getting caught up in the typical November rumor mill.

Harbaugh has been at Michigan for three years - boasting a 28-8 record with an 18-6 mark in the Big Ten.
