Jim Harbaugh will return to Michigan as their head coach after interview with the Minnesota Vikings

Jim Harbaugh got tempted with the NFL and an NFL interview. He’s staying right where he is.

After interviewing on Wednesday for the Minnesota Vikings head coaching job, Harbaugh decided to inform Michigan that he is returning to Ann Arbor for the 2022 season.

Harbaugh had been linked to several teams this off-season; the New York Giants, Chicago Bears and Las Vegas Raiders, but none of them interviewed him, however the Vikings did interview him with interest.

Los Angeles Rams defensive coordinator Raheem Morris and New York Giants defensive coordinator Patrick Graham are considered finalists for the Vikings head coaching jobs.
