Has Michigan’s Jim Harbaugh been contacted by any NFL teams?

He didn't really answer during a Peach Bowl news conference Friday morning.

ATLANTA —Three days before the NFL's Black Monday, Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh's name continues to pop up as a potential replacement coach in the league, even though he has said he plans to stay in Ann Arbor.

So I asked Harbaugh whether any NFL team has reached out to him or his representatives, and why he isn't interested in the NFL.

"I really don't have any representatives," Harbaugh said. "No agent or anything."

That was it. That was the full response.

Harbaugh was speaking Friday morning alongside Florida coach Dan Mullen in advance of Saturday's top-10 showdown in the Peach Bowl.

The Bucs, of course, are among the teams that could be in the market for a new head coach, if they choose to dismiss Dirk Koetter. Koetter is 19-28 overall and 5-10 this year heading into Sunday's season finale against the Falcons.

Harbaugh  was 44-19-1 with the 49ers from 2011-14 and guided San Francisco to Super Bowl XLVII.
