There have been rumblings that the Chargers job is the one Harbaugh could have been waiting for, as his wife is from the California area and they have a home there. Toledo reporter Jordan Strack says Harbaugh has been actively searching for an NFL job.
A source tells me Jim Harbaugh has been actively working to find a NFL job. That has been the #1 thing holding him up on him signing an extension at Michigan.
This isn’t exactly the most shocking news, but his desire right now is certainly to return to the NFL.
