Miami Dolphins keen on hiring 49ers Jim Harbaugh

Published Add your comment

Jim Harbaugh has led the San Francisco 49ers to three consecutive Divisional title games during his time as head coach of the franchise.

But it appears all is not well for the former Stanford coach in California if recent reports are to be believed.

First, rumors began to circulate about potential trade discussions with the Cleveland Browns involving Harbaugh, then Ian Rapoport revealed both the University of Texas and USC Trojans had voiced their interest in his services during this offseason.

And now it seems the Miami Dolphins are lining up an offer for the 50-year old should Harbaugh's relationship with the 49ers turn sour.

According to NFL reporter Jason Cole, the rumor linking the much-maligned Florida franchise has gained strength over the Combine weekend and he firmly believes they will chase Harbaugh in 2015 as long as San Francisco do not win the Super Bowl next season.

Harbaugh's current deal is up for renewal after next season, and with the Dolphins searching for a drastic turn around in fortunes on and off the field, they could be a good fit.

All of this rests of Harbaugh and the 49ers parting ways of course but few could have suspected such debate when Harbaugh was taking his team so close to a MetLife Super Bowl appearance last month.
