Michigan Wolverines head coach Jim Harbaugh has reportedly considered a return to the NFL following his most successful season with the team yet.

Several sources within Michigan football told The Athletic this week that they think if Harbaugh is offered the head coaching job with the Las Vegas Raiders, he will accept it.

Going into his seventh season with the Wolverines, Harbaugh took a salary cut from $8 million to $4 million, but he made $1.5 million in bonuses for winning the Big Ten East division, Big Ten championship, and the playoffs.

The reactions to the recent Harbaugh news were varied as Wolverine fans are growing weary of the drama, while Raiders fans appear to be ready to welcome him with open arms.

Las Vegas is in need of a new head coach and GM since Jon Gruden left the team halfway through the season due to controversy, and GM Mike Mayock was just fired by the franchise.
