After a strong first game as the Colts interim Head Coach, Jeff Saturday has since gone 0-3 and the latest loss an embarrassing effort on national television vs the Cowboys. The Colts are now 4-8-1 and with the playoffs a long shot, most fans have begun looking ahead to the NFL Draft and who the potential next Head Coach may be.
Jim Harbaugh nearly returned to the NFL last offseason. After multiple interviews, the Minnesota Vikings ended up going with Kevin O’Connell and Harbaugh returned to Michigan. After another Big Ten championship win and 13-0 season for the Maize and Blue, the rumor mill fired up for Harbaugh and another NFL run.
