Vikings Plan on Interviewing Jim Harbaugh


January 31, 2022

Jim Harbaugh took the Michigan Wolverines football program to new heights this season, helping them to their first B1G Championship. Harbaugh was rewarded for his efforts, being named the AP College Football Coach of the Year and earning an interview with the Minnesota Vikings for their vacant head coaching position.

Tom Pelissero confirmed that the Vikings would be flying Harbaugh in on Wednesday for an interview.

Harbaugh earned a reputation in the college ranks but spent four seasons coaching the San Francisco 49ers. He led the Niners to two division championships and Super Bowl XLVII before falling out of favor after an 8-8 record in 2014. Harbaugh took over the Wolverines program in 2015, helping them to a bowl game in six of his seven seasons.

The Vikings need a coach with a good pedigree after finishing second in the NFC North with an 8-9 record and missing the playoffs in three of the past four seasons.

The NFL season concludes with Super Bowl LVI on February 13. Head over to FanDuel Sportsbook for a list of wagering options.
