Although Harbaugh has coached at Michigan since 2015, many sources close to him have indicated that, if given the opportunity, he will take another crack at coaching in the NFL.
There have been previous reports on Harbaugh going to the Indianapolis Colts, but it appears that this is unsubstantiated, at least, for now.
None of that is true.
While I do believe Irsay will take a swing, but he can't outbid Penner. It's not a "done deal" Harbaugh comes back and no team is a "front runner." https://t.co/NuvFWiGYgk

Harbaugh has been an NFL head coach for the San Francisco 49ers.
Many have linked him to the Colts, because he played for them from 1994-1997, and are in desperate need of new leadership.
In the above tweet, NFL insider Benjamin Allbright mentions someone by the name of “Penner.”
Penner is about Denver Broncos owner, Greg Penner.
The Broncos recently fired new head coach Nathaniel Hackett, who did not make it a full season with the team.
Besides the Colts, the Broncos could use a coach with the tenure of Harbaugh, given that he has coached for over 20 years to date.
The Broncos currently sit with a record of 4-12 and have nothing to play for in their final game of the season.
However, they certainly have a plethora of weapons, both on the offensive and defensive sides of the ball.
If they can get a coach like Harbaugh in their building, the Broncos may be able to find instant success and will return to their former playoff-caliber glory.
Only time will tell if Harbaugh does leap back to the NFL, and which team will be the best fit for his skill set.
