Jets deny report linking them to Jim Harbaugh

The widespread belief is that the New York Jets are gearing themselves up for a coaching search, but they’re already engaging in some rumor control before it even starts.

Mike Florio of ProFootballTalk reported Sunday night that the Jets were expected to make a run at Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh after firing current head coach Todd Bowles. Any report from a reliable outlet linking Harbaugh to a return to the NFL tends to spread like wildfire, and it did so here enough that the Jets felt the need to pour cold water on it Monday morning.

For what it’s worth, Florio responded to the Jets’ denial by doubling down on his reporting.

Bowles may be the head coach of the Jets now, but the expectation that he’ll be fired is so widespread that there are already reports about where he might land after it happens. Any pursuit of Harbaugh seems like a longshot to say the least, but the reality is that a Jets coaching search does look inevitable.
