Jim Harbaugh is known as one of the best coaches in the NFL, yet it looks like his time with the San Francisco 49ers is coming to an end. Harbaugh has not had a good relationship with members of the front office and the 49ers are underachieving this season. The former Stanford coach has a head coaching record of 40-15 and made it to the Super Bowl a couple of seasons ago. Just like Rex Ryan, Harbaugh has a feisty personality and players love to play for him. Harbaugh has shown he can develop a young quarterback (Colin Kaepernick), and with a likely top pick the Jets could be looking at a guy like Mariota or Winston.
In order to get Harbaugh, the Jets will need to be aggressive. The University of Michigan could make a big offer to Harbaugh to take over at his alma-mater if the Niners do indeed decide to part ways with him. John Idzik should not just play it safe and go after a coordinator, but should go hard after the big fish in Harbaugh.
