Jim Harbaugh: Jets Have Reached Out to Coach

Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports

Adam Schefter and Manish Mehta both report the Jets have reached out to former 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh.

Florio reported last night that Harbaugh is no longer under contract with the 49ers, meaning an NFL team that hired him would not owe San Francisco any compensation.

This is probably a sign that it is a done deal Harbaugh is going back to college to coach at the University of Michigan. Otherwise it would make sense for the Niners to hold onto him and get something in return.

It doesn't hurt to ask, though. The Jets certainly should leave no stone unturned, and Harbaugh is the best coach available.
