During an appearance on the Pat McAfee Show, ESPN's Adam Schefter discussed the likelihood of this scenario becoming a reality. He pointed out that Harbaugh has long harbored the ambition of securing a national championship for the University of Michigan. If he were to achieve this goal, Schefter believes that it might create a sense of fulfillment, potentially opening the door for him to consider a move to the NFL.
Schefter also noted that Harbaugh has been approached by NFL teams in the past, including the Minnesota Vikings two years ago and the Denver Broncos last year. While Harbaugh had previously expressed his commitment to Michigan, he has entertained these possibilities when they arose. If NFL teams come knocking again, Schefter anticipates that Harbaugh will likely listen, even though he can't be certain of the outcome.
As for the Chicago Bears specifically, Schefter expressed some doubt about the likelihood of Harbaugh taking the head coaching job there at this time, based on his assessment. However, he did acknowledge that the landscape can change, and circumstances may influence Harbaugh's decision.
Jim Harbaugh, currently the head coach of the Michigan Wolverines, recently guided the team to their third consecutive Big Ten championship, and they are now setting their sights on a national championship.
It's worth noting that the Chicago Bears hold the top pick in the 2024 NFL Draft, which is expected to feature a strong class of quarterbacks.
