The New York Daily News reports the Jets have "reached out" to Jim Harbaugh about their head-coaching vacancy.
Reporter Manish Mehta is confirming ESPN's Adam Schefter's report. Per Schefter, the Bears and Raiders have also made "overtures to change (Harbaugh's) mind" from taking the University of Michigan job. Harbaugh marches to the beat of his own drummer, but multiple reports have tabbed his landing at UM as a done deal. It would be quite a reversal for him to turn his back on his alma mater now.

Former 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh has agreed to take the University of Michigan job.

Just a few days after "mutually parting ways" with the 49ers, Harbaugh will be announced as the next head coach at Michigan -- his alma mater. Harbaugh was a star quarterback during his playing days there, winning Big Ten Player of the Year honors and finishing third in Heisman voting as a senior in 1986. Initial reports said Michigan made a six-year, $49M offer to Harbaugh, which would mean he's college football's highest paid coach.

49ers fired coach Jim Harbaugh.

The 49ers are refusing to call the transaction a firing, but instead a "(mutual agreement) to part ways." Whatever they want to call it, the 49ers are pushing out a coach with one year left on his contract. Harbaugh was a revelation in his first go-around as an NFL head coach, posting a 44-19-1 record across four seasons while reaching the NFC Championship Game three times. Harbaugh's squad lost Super Bowl XLVII to the Ravens, and were one play away from being world champions. It seems absurd that Harbaugh has lost his power struggle with GM Trent Baalke, but it's no secret that his personality is a grating one. Despite the winning, he just couldn't get along with his bosses. Harbaugh is widely rumored to be returning to the college ranks, and his alma mater Michigan. We should have official word some time in the next 48 hours. Whomever the 49ers hire next will be a downgrade, and likely a steep one.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Raiders still plan to make a "concerted effort" to lure Jim Harbaugh to Oakland.

University of Michigan officials are "confident" Harbaugh is going to Ann Arbor, according to Schefter, but there is no deal done yet. Schefter confirms Michigan "remains the favorite" to hire Harbaugh, but he may as well use other organizations as leverage to get as much money as possible. If Harbaugh does go back to college, it's fair to wonder how long he'll stay there. It's pretty widely accepted that his true passion is for the NFL.

Dave Feldman of CSN Bay Area reports Jim Harbaugh will be the next head coach at the University of Michigan.

Feldman reports Harbaugh will be introduced in Ann Arbor on Tuesday. A Michigan alum, Harbaugh wound up spending four seasons as the 49ers' head coach before a falling out with GM Trent Baalke, compiling a record of 43-19-1 entering Sunday's season finale against Arizona. Harbaugh was the head coach at Stanford in the prior four years and knows the college game. It's believed Baalke will now pursue a coach willing to accept less power. In-house candidates will be DC Vic Fangio and DL coach Jim Tomsula. Together, Harbaugh and Baalke turned around a 49ers organization that had previously missed the playoffs in eight straight years. Their divorce was known to be inevitable entering the 2014 season.

A source tells ESPN that Jim Harbaugh is at least "considering" the Michigan job.

Harbaugh has been a lame duck coach in San Francisco for weeks now. Multiple reports have stated Michigan made a six-year, $49M offer -- a deal that would make him the highest paid coach in college football. Harbaugh was a star quarterback during his playing days at Michigan, winning Big Ten Player of the Year honors and finishing third in Heisman voting as a senior in 1986.

According to CSN Bay Area, the "overwhelming sentiment" is that coach Jim Harbaugh will not be back with the 49ers in 2015.

Reporter Matt Maiocco came to his conclusion after speaking with "numerous people close to both sides." Per Maiocco, Harbaugh's relationship with GM Trent Baalke is no longer tenable, and he has "alienated a lot of people inside the organization." Maiocco also believes that Harbaugh wants to remain in the NFL if/when he moves on from the 49ers. Harbaugh has one year remaining on his contract, but will either be fired or traded. Although it makes for great gossip, a trade isn't likely.

An NFL source informed ESPN's Adam Schefter that the Raiders are the "favorite" to trade for coach Jim Harbaugh, while the Jets are also "keeping a close eye on the situation."

The Raiders have long been connected to Harbaugh. He'd get all the power he could ever desire in Oakland and could stay living in the Bay Area. The 49ers will look to acquire draft pick(s) in exchange for Harbaugh, who is under contract through 2015. We've gotten to that part of the year where the coaching rumor mill begins to churn. Harbaugh will be highly sought after.

CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora reports 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh is "all but certain to be coaching elsewhere next season."

This isn't new news by any means, as FOX Sports' Jay Glazer reported the same last month. But the 49ers are 7-5, while Colin Kaepernick has been regressing instead of taking steps forward this season. It's fairly clear that Jed York, Trent Baalke, and Harbaugh can not all coexist in San Francisco. Signed through 2015, Harbaugh will likely either be traded or outright fired. There'll be no shortage of suitors despite his controlling ways. CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora mentions DL coach Jim Tomsula, DC Vic Fangio, and Broncos OC Adam Gase as potential Harbaugh replacements. Major turnover is on the horizon in San Fran.

FOX's Jay Glazer "doesn't see any way" Jim Harbaugh is back with the 49ers in 2015, "even if" they win the Super Bowl.

Per Glazer — the NFL's most plugged-in reporter — Harbaugh's act has "worn thin" throughout the entire 49ers' organization. It seems absurd that a team could be so ready to move on from a coach who's reached the NFC Championship Game every year of his NFL coaching career, but the smoke is so thick that there must be fire. If Harbaugh is the same way behind the scenes that he is on the sidelines, it's perhaps understandable that players and executives have grown weary. That being said, if Harbs is indeed let go, he'd be the hottest coaching candidate in recent memory.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports coach Jim Harbaugh is already losing the 49ers' locker room, and the veterans are wondering if he's really "all in."

According to RapSheet's sources, Harbaugh "irked" the 49ers' veterans by bringing the team to Baltimore to practice with the Ravens during training camp ahead of the preseason game between the two clubs. Reports of tension growing between Harbaugh and the 49ers' front office are old, but the coach not having his players on his side is new. Harbaugh is under contract through 2015, and we don't see any way he gets fired. If Harbaugh can lead the 49ers to a Super Bowl title, it should wash away all concerns.

The 49ers and coach Jim Harbaugh have tabled extension talks until after the season.

The sides haven't been terribly close, and Harbaugh is already signed through 2015, so tabling talks is a good decision with the season little more than a month away. The 49ers have thus far played hardball with their prodigy coach, a strategy that could eventually come back to bite them.

Profootballtalk reports coach Jim Harbaugh has yet to respond to the 49ers' latest contract offer.

According to a source with knowledge of the situation, "not much is happening." Harbaugh is signed through the 2015 season. The 49ers are reportedly reluctant to pay Harbaugh "like a coach who has won a Super Bowl." If the 49ers are seriously drawing such a serious line in the sand, they're risking losing one of the best coaches of his generation over what is basically semantics.
Thu, Jun 5, 2014 10:43:00 PM

Coach Jim Harbaugh said there's "zero opportunity or chance" that he'll leave the 49ers before his contract expires at the end of the 2015 season.

"If that existed, it existed in somebody else's mind, not mine. I am too fond of my team, the players, the coaches. I really feel like we have one of the best, if not the best organizations in football," Harbaugh said. Harbs denies there's any rift between he and GM Trent Baalke regarding power and also denies that he's seeking a contract extension. Of course, with Harbaugh, we take everything with a grain of salt. He doesn't reveal much and is likely just trying to right the ship.

A source with inside knowledge of the 49ers told the San Francisco Chronicle that coach Jim Harbaugh's "act has worn thin" inside the team's locker room, particularly among "face of the 49ers" type players.

The 49ers have been able to overcome the friction due to winning, but the Chronicle's Ann Killion suggests "a few losses could expose a widening rift." This is the first report of players having problems with Harbaugh. To this point, it's only been reported that Harbaugh doesn't get along with GM Trent Baalke. It's becoming very clear 2014 will be Harbs' final year with the 49ers.
