It appears Harbaugh is reciprocating the pro interest he's getting.

Harbaugh has been "calling around" and asking coaches around the league if they would be open to joining his potential staff if does head to the NFL, according to insider Jay Glazer. That shows the former Coach of the Year is clearly open to making the jump once again, rather than rebuffing any offers to stay at Michigan.

Harbaugh enjoyed plenty of success in his first NFL stint, going 44-19-1 with the San Francisco 49ers from 2011-2014. That included a Super Bowl appearance in 2012 with a Niners team that boasted one of the best defenses in the league.

There will be no shortage of interested teams if Harbaugh does commit to pursuing an NFL gig. The Denver Broncos fired their head coach after Week 18, meanwhile the Las Vegas Raiders and Jacksonville Jaguars currently have interims at the helm. And there's several other teams that could look to make a big shakeup this offseason.
