Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network reported on Sunday that while many expected the University of Michigan to target 49ers HC Jim Harbaugh if/when they fired Brady Hoke, the school actually prefers his brother, Ravens HC John Harbaugh.
However, Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun reports that John Harbaugh is not interested in the job for a number of reasons.
According to Wilson, Harbaugh is friends with Hoke and wouldn’t target his position due to their friendship. On top of that, Harbaugh is reportedly “content” with his current job as the Ravens head coach.
Since taking the job several years ago, Harbaugh has led the Ravens to a record of 65-35 overall, which includes a Super Bowl title in 2013. His contract runs through the 2017, so job security shouldn’t not be an issue for him.
The idea in general is highly speculative, but it would not be surprising to hear more names from the NFL connected to the Michigan job if/when Brady Hoke is relieved of his duties.
