As Jim Harbaugh explores potential opportunities with NFL teams, Michigan football is internally initiating its quest for a new head coach. While no clear external candidates have been identified, there are intriguing possibilities, one of which is LSU football head coach Brian Kelly.

Bruce Feldman of The Athletic has suggested Kelly as a potential successor for Harbaugh at Michigan. Although Feldman expresses skepticism about the fit, sources indicate that Kelly would be interested if offered the position by Michigan. Feldman notes that Kelly’s fit in Louisiana has appeared odd, and there have been signals that he might consider a move to Michigan, given his nearly two-decade coaching tenure in the state.
