Jerry Rosburg endorses Jim Harbaugh


With Jim Harbaugh’s name swirling in NFL circles, count Jerry Rosburg as one who believes the Broncos would be wise to consider Michigan’s man as their new head coach.

The Broncos interim head coach lauded Harbaugh on Friday in Dove Valley, with Rosburg calling Harbaugh “a fabulous football coach.”

“I watched him as a player and I admired him greatly as a player because he’s so competitive and the fire he has just comes naturally to him because he’s been involved in football his whole life,” Rosburg said. “His father has the same fire in his belly, as does his brother John. That’s followed through with his coaching career, seeing the success he’s had at every level (of NFL and college).”

The Rosburgs and the Harbaughs are family friends — “we’re the Harburgs the Rosbaughs, that’s how close we are, depends on who’s saying it,” Rosburg quipped — and Rosburg worked for over a decade on John’s staff in Baltimore, including serving as associate head coach for his “best friend.”

While Jim Harbaugh reiterated his intention this week to remain at Michigan next season, reports have already linked him to conversations with the Panthers, and it’s logical to believe the Broncos and Colts (who also have an interim coach) could also come calling.
