Report: Harbaugh Hires Notre Dame DL Coach in Michigan Originally Appeared on NBC Sports Chicago
Days after the Bears’ head coach search began, it might already be time to take a fan favorite off the wishlist. According to several reports, Jim Harbaugh has added Wolverines to his team in Michigan.
The reported hiring of a defensive line coach may seem completely unrelated to Harbaugh’s future with the team. But the idea is that Harbaugh wouldn’t ask a coach to uproot his family and his life if Harbaugh was seriously considering moving into the NFL. It’s similar reasoning as to why many have removed Ohio State head coach Ryan Day from their boards. Day hired a new offensive line coach away from UCLA, so it would be prudent to bring Frye across the country, just to leave him on the sidelines a few weeks later.
In all, we know of nine head coach candidates the Bears hope to interview in the offseason. So far, they’ve completed one of those interviews with former Eagles head coach and Andy Reid disciple Doug Pederson.
Harbaugh has led the Wolverines since 2015 and is 61-24 in his seven seasons with the team. He also went 1-5 in bowl games.
