Report: Michigan interested in Ravens' John Harbaugh


Michigan is considering Baltimore Ravens' head coach John Harbaugh as a replacement for current Wolverines' coach Brady Hoke, reports the NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

Rapoport adds that Michigan showed initial interest in John's brother, Jim Harbaugh, head coach of the San Francisco 49ers, but John is now viewed as more of a long-term option.

SI: How can Michigan football return to its former glory?

At 2-3, the Wolverines are off to one of the worst starts in school history, losing three games in September for the first time ever. Their most recent loss was a 30-14 drubbing at the hands of Minnesota.

In seven seasons with the Ravens, Harbaugh has a regular season record of 64-35. He led Baltimore to a win in Super Bowl XLVII.
