On Sunday, rumors began to surface on social media, connecting Michigan Wolverines head coach Jim Harbaugh to the Miami Dolphins job.

Harbaugh has been connected to the Raiders and Vikings head coaching jobs. While the Raiders recently hired Josh McDaniels, the Vikings job remains open. Harbaugh reportedly interviewed for the Minnesota job on Saturday night.

The Dolphins' job is an interesting one, as the team's owner, Stephen Ross, is a Michigan man. However, he said earlier this year that he would not be the one who takes Harbaugh away from his alma mater.

"I'm not going to be the person to take Jim Harbaugh from the University of Michigan," he said after firing Brian Flores.

That mindset might be changing, though. If Harbaugh is committed to leaving Michigan for the National Football League, why wouldn't Ross make a play at hiring him? According to multiple reports on Sunday, there's some truth to the Harbaugh-to-Dolphins speculation that is growing.

At this point, it feels like Harbaugh very much wants to leave Michigan for the National Football League. It could be a matter of deciding between the Dolphins and the Vikings jobs.

Monday could be interesting.
