Jim Harbaugh favored to bolt Michigan for NFL

January 4 - As Jim Harbaugh and his staff prepare to face Washington's explosive offense in the College Football Playoff title game on Monday,

commentators speculate whether it will be his final game at Michigan.

His name is always mentioned in connection with potential NFL coaching jobs,

 but that conjecture was heightened this season after Harbaugh was suspended from the Wolverines' bench on two separate occasions.

It escalated even more after allegations that he had engaged agent Don Yee.  Yee is well-known for his NFL ties, most notably as Tom Brady's and Sean Payton's agent.

Earlier this season, Michigan reportedly offered Harbaugh a 10-year, $125 million contract deal, making him the highest-paid coach in college football.

It would also preclude him from considering a position in the NFL in 2024.

Harbaugh, 60, has yet to sign an extension with Michigan, which has added fuel to the fire ahead of the championship game.
