On Tuesday evening, we passed along a report from Chris Balas of The Wolverine that Jim Harbaugh is expected to be named the next head coach of the Minnesota Vikings and that he had already started saying his goodbyes in Ann Arbor.
On Wednesday morning, ESPN’ Adam Rittenberg confirmed Balas’ report by saying that sources of his within the Michigan program told him that Harbaugh has indeed began saying his goodbyes and that he is expected to return to the NFL.
NFL hirings can take surprise twists, but the expectation at Michigan from those I've talked to is Harbaugh will head back to the league. Several U-M sources said he began the goodbye process earlier this week, as @Balas_Wolverine first reported. https://t.co/Gf0W3xEM1D
