The idea of Jim Harbaugh returning to the NFL ranks after a few seasons at the University of Michigan will likely resurface in the years to come. After leaving for Michigan in 2014 after 4 years with the 49ers, Harbaugh shared some light on life outside of the NFL. The younger Harbaugh brother simply put he really doesn’t miss the NFL.

“It’s not like I ‘miss’ the NFL, because it didn’t go anywhere,” Harbaugh recently told MMQB. “I get great enjoyment watching, and I’m a diehard watching my brother, his team and what they’re doing. There are things not coaching in the NFL that you do miss, those relationships with the players themselves, who are playing at the highest level.

“But I have those relationships with the players here, the NFL is still there, and getting (college players) in a position to get to experience that is a very worthwhile thing, and I attack that every single day. Bottom line, it’s not something to miss. It’s still there. … I’m happy and challenged every day with what I’m doing right now.”

Older brother John Harbaugh still coaches in the NFL for the Ravens where brother Jim can obviously get his fix whenever he chooses. Jim has stood side line to Raven games in the past along side his brother. If I were to take a guess a possible NFL return would optimally be with franchise getting ready to draft his future Michigan quarterback who has been hypothetically groomed for the 2020 season.
