Jim Harbaugh won’t succeed Hoke as Wolverines’ next coach: ESPN’s Schefter says

ESPN's NFL insider Adam Schefter has dampened the theory that San Francisco 49ers' coach Jim Harbaugh would succeed Brady Hoke as football coach of the Michigan Wolverines.

The post of Michigan Wolverines' coach is widely expected to become vacant soon as Hoke's job is being evaluated by Michigan interim athletic director Jim Hackett.

During a discussion on ESPN Radio's "Mike & Mike" show Schefter said that he didn't see such a union happening in the near future because Harbaugh would prefer coaching in the NFL.

Speaking about the speculation, "I think he's more interested in staying in the pros. I've had a lot of people ask me 'could Jim Harbaugh wind up at Michigan?' I'm not going to tell you he can't, but based on everything I've been told and heard, I do not see that happening."

The discussion primarily centered around Harbaugh's NFL contacts and Sunday report that Harbaugh could be traded to some other team, such as the Oakland Raiders and the New York Jets. Schefter pointed out that Harbaugh has got a year left on his contract, so he can not just up and leave to join some other team.
