Following a season full of crazy adversity, the Las Vegas Raiders still managed to find their way into the playoffs. However, now they need to figure out who their next head coach will be. Jim Harbaugh’s name has been floated a lot as a potential candidate and many fans would love to see that move made.

Harbaugh had a lot of success during his tenure as the San Francisco 49ers’ head coach a few years back. He even led them to the Super Bowl, where they lost to his brother, John Harbaugh and the Baltimore Ravens.

He has helped rebuild the Michigan Wolverines to being a legitimate National Championship Contender. Reports have stated that he has some level of interest in returning to the NFL. The Raiders could be the perfect fit.

While the Raiders may have interest in Harbaugh, no one has known how Harbaugh would feel about the Raiders’ job. That may have been revealed.

According to Bruce Feldman of Fox Sports, if the Raiders were to offer their coaching job to Harbaugh, he would likely take it.

That makes a ton of sense. The Raiders can offer Harbaugh a team that is fresh off of a playoff appearance. They have plenty of talent on both sides of the football and simply need a head coach to take them to the next level, along with a few roster improvements.

Should the Raiders make the move to hire Jim Harbaugh, they would immediately take a step forward. One of the biggest issues for Las Vegas in recent years has been off-the-field issues. Harbaugh has proven time and time again that he creates a comfortable and consistent culture for the players.

Outside of Harbaugh, the Raiders are also very interested in keeping Rich Bisaccia as their head coach. Players have been very vocal about their support of him to return. Mark Davis will have some tough decisions to make.

Expect to hear more news and rumors come out about Jim Harbaugh and the Raiders. He certainly seems to be a legitimate candidate and it will be interesting to see if he makes his way back into the NFL this offseason.
