Michigan head coach Jim Harbaugh shot down a report from FootballScoop that his representatives have been looking at options for an NFL return.

Harbaugh sent the following letter to the parents of current Wolverine players and recruits, according to Sam Webb of Michigan Insider on WTKA.

"Dear Parents, I am reaching out to let you know that the recent claims that I am "pursuing an exit strategy" are total crap. It's an annual strategy driven by our enemies to cause disruption to our program and to negatively recruit. By the way, I don't even have an "agent or representative." I am committed to your sons, their education and to their development as football players and people Please excuse the informality of this letter but I felt that it was important to get this out to you as quickly as possible."

Harbaugh is currently in the fifth year of a seven-year contract. He has a 43–16 record but has yet to reach the College Football Playoff.

Before arriving in Ann Arbor, he served four years as the head coach of the San Francisco 49ers, which included a Super Bowl appearance. 

The Wolverines (5–2) will host Notre Dame on Saturday.
