Jim Harbaugh is obviously the hottest name in the NFL coaching circles right now. The Miami Dolphins courted him while still having a head coach. The San Francisco 49ers have apparently offered him a truckload of money to coach their team, John Elway and the Denver Broncos are still looking to have a meeting with him, and Stanford is still making their pitch to keep him at the school for at least one more year. Peter King said on Twitter earlier this morning that Stanford will probably try to sell Harbaugh on coming back for one more year, with Andrew Luck who has already said he is returning, to make a run at a National Championship and then bolt for the NFL:
My guess is Stan richies said to him: We'll give u $5m to coach 1 yr, go for natl title, coach Luck, then go 2 NFL w/better openings in '12.
This may all be a pipe dream because the rumors are out there that he has been offered as much as $7 million a year to coach in the NFL, but it is still a dream that we can have until he officially signs with another team on the dotted line.
