The first significant action from the NFL writers regarding Jim Harbaugh to Michigan rumors have starter.
According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, Michigan has a monster offer on the table to Harbaugh. To the tune of six-years and $48 million, which would make him the highest paid coach in both college and the professional levels.

On Around the NFL show on Wednesday, Rapoport further broke down the talks between Harbaugh and Michigan. Sources were telling Rapoport that Harbaugh rebuffed Michigan at first and interim athletic director Jim Hackett came back with the monster offer. This rumor has been argued by local Michigan writers who claim Harbaugh has not told Michigan no.
Whether Harbaugh is close to accepting the offer remains to be seen. An answer is likely expected once San Francisco's season is over December 28.
