Denver Broncos seek Jim Harbaugh for head coaching job

With no chance of qualification, the Denver Broncos are thinking about 2023 and have contacted Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh to fill the head coaching position, Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk reports.

The Colorado franchise fired last week Nathaniel Hackett, who was making his debut in the job, but couldn't resist a disastrous season in which he was a playoff contender for the offseason moves.

Meanwhile, the Wolverines fell in the College Football Playoff semifinals for the second consecutive season on Saturday, suffering a loss to TCU. In early December, Harbaugh promised to return to Michigan next season after it was reported that NFL teams showed interest in hiring him as head coach.

The 59-year-old pro was interviewed by the Minnesota Vikings last offseason, but after opting to return to the Wolverines, he said he was closing the door on a return to the NFL. In early 2022, he signed a five-year extension with Michigan.

Denver's new ownership group intends to be "aggressive" in securing the team's next coach.

Harbaugh coached the San Francisco 49ers from 2011-14, with a 44-19-1 regular season campaign and a Super Bowl appearance in three postseason appearances.

In the first game without Hackett, the Broncos lost to the Kansas City Chiefs 27-24 and remain at the bottom of the AFC West at 4-12. The Colorado franchise will take the field for the last time in the regular season against the Los Angeles Chargers.
