Jim Harbaugh could receive an offer from the Chicago Bears to return to the NFL. According to a report by Dianna Russini, after a spectacular season with Michigan in college football, the head coach might come back to the team where he was a quarterback in the 80s.

“The Chicago Bears are another organization I’ve heard has had some conversations about that depending on which decision they make with this coaching staff that is in place and, of course, what they do with that quarterback situation.”

The Bears could have up to two selections in the Top 5 of the 2024 NFL Draft, and it is speculated that the next weeks are a final test for coach Matt Eberflus and quarterback Justin Fields. Following that blockbuster trade with Carolina, a new strategist could have the opportunity to go for names like Caleb Williams or Marvin Harrison Jr.

“Jim (Harbaugh) is certainly a name that is respected in league circles in the NFL. Ownership is obviously very interested in what he could bring back to the NFL. So, I certainly think this is going to just continue as we get closer to the end of the regular season when ownership can start that process of the coach search.”
