Broncos coaching candidate Jim Harbaugh staying at Michigan


Take one of the primary candidates for the Broncos’ head coaching job off the board.

Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh intends to remain at the school rather than entertaining job possibilities in the NFL, according to the university’s president.

“I just got off the phone with Coach Harbaugh and Jim shared with me the great news that he is going to remain as the Head Coach of the Michigan Wolverines,” UM president Santa Ono said in a statement released via Twitter on Monday afternoon. “That is fantastic news that I have communicated to our Athletic Director Warde Manuel.”

Denver conducted a virtual interview with Harbaugh, who recently completed his eighth season at his alma mater, a week ago and he was seen as a strong candidate due to the fact that he’s won at a high level both in college and in the NFL. Instead of returning to the pro game, however, he’ll chase a national championship with the Wolverines.
