We could have two Harbaughs leading major college football programs in 2019, according to a new report from an NFL insider.

USC is expected by some to move on from head coach Clay Helton. The Trojans lost to Notre Dame on Saturday night, finishing the year at 5-7.

If USC does end up moving on, many expect the Trojans to look in the NFL ranks for a new head coach.

Enter: John Harbaugh.

The Baltimore Ravens' head coach is believed to be on the hot seat and NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport is reporting that he could be a candidate at USC.

"If USC fires coach Clay Helton, as those involved expect, one name is believed to be among their top 3 candidates: Ravens coach John Harbaugh. He joins former Raiders coach Jack Del Rio and PSU coach James Franklin. … But would USC wait for an NFL coach to finish his season?" he reports.

If that does happen, we need a Michigan-USC non-conference series scheduled as soon as possible. A bowl game matchup could be fun, too.
