Jim Harbaugh let Michigan know he plans to return to the school and is dedicated to the job moving forward, despite meeting with the Minnesota Vikings about their head coaching position on College Football national signing day.
It seems as though Jim Harbaugh went into his interview with the Vikings with no real plan or preparation, just assuming that he already had the job due to his friendship with Kwesi Adofo-Mensah, the team’s General Manager. On the other hand, the Vikings approached this as they would any other initial coaching interview.

Imagine the amount of embarrassment on Kwesi’s face upon realizing Harbaugh was unprepared and treating the interview as more of a formality than an actual interview.
The Offer That Never Came
As mentioned previously, Jim Harbaugh called Michigan to inform them he would like to return as head coach as long as they wanted him back. But in reality, is this truly what he wanted? Or is it a result of the fact that the Minnesota Vikings never offered him the job?
Jim Harbaugh called Michigan to inform the school that, despite interviewing with the Vikings today, he will be returning to school for the 2022 season, sources tell ESPN. Michigan was, in the words of one source, “elated” to get Harbaugh’s decision.

Regardless, Michigan is reported to be “elated” with Harbaugh’s decision to remain the Wolverines head coach moving forward.
