That's right! Jim Harbaugh, long-time head coach of the Michigan Wolverines football team and former Head Coach of the San Francisco 49ers, is expected to be announced as the new Head Coach of the Minnesota Vikings.
Harbaugh had a career 59-23 record at Michigan, including an appearance in this year's College Football Playoffs after a 12-2 record this year. Harbaugh was rumored to be looking to come back to the NFL for a couple years now, and after the Vikings parted ways with longtime head coach Mike Zimmer after this season the Minnesota ownership weren't shy about their first choice.
Harbaugh had interviewed with the Chicago Bears also this year, but seems to have settled in Minneapolis. The move was first reported yesterday February 2nd, by Pro Football Talk and several other outlets. The details of Harbaugh's contract are unknown at the time and are most likely the reason this move has not been announced as official yet.
Harbaugh's last years in the NFL included a trip to Super Bowl and a 44-19-1 record with the Niners. Will he have similar success with the Vikings? One thing is for sure, he'll look for the short term success he had with them and the long-term success he had with the Wolverines.
