John Elway on Jim Harbaugh: 'I think Michigan is back in the picture'
Stanford football coach Jim Harbaugh, who in recent days has been connected to NFL head coaching jobs in San Francisco, Miami and Denver, may choose to remain a college coach, Denver Broncos vice president of football John Elway said today.
That may mean staying at Stanford. Or coming to Michigan.
Speaking on 87.7 The Ticket in Denver, Elway was asked about the Broncos' interest in Harbaugh.
"To me, it’s coming down to Stanford, and I think Michigan is back in the picture," Elway said. "I think he wants to stay in the college level. 'Cause we’ve been in touch with him, and they are aware we’d like to talk to him if he wants to go the NFL route."
The Dolphins and other rumors? Elway said to ignore them.
"In the last 48 hours, I’ve learned that all the rumors you hear, not one of them has been true yet."
ESPN's Adam Schefter says Harbaugh will either remain as Stanford's football coach or land in the NFL with the San Francisco 49ers.
The Dolphins are out, Schefter said. The Broncos are out, he says.
