John Harbaugh thinks there's 'good chance' Jim Harbaugh stays at Stanford

By Cindy Boren

Jim Harbaugh, perhaps the hottest coaching prospect around right now, will wrap up the season tonight when his Stanford team plays Virginia Tech in the Orange Bowl.

Then what will Harbaugh do? Stay at Stanford? Take the Michigan job? Take an NFL job? His brother, Baltimore Ravens Coach John Harbaugh, says he wouldn't be surprised if his brother stayed at Stanford.

"I don't know what he's going to do," Harbaugh said, according to the National Football Post's Aaron Wilson. today at the Ravens' training complex. "I thought I knew. I thought he had an idea, and I don't think he's for sure."

Naturally, reporters pounced on that one. Just what idea did his brother have?

"I walked right into that one," Harbaugh said. "I don't want to speak for him, but I think there's a chance he'll stay at Stanford. I think there's a good chance he'll stay there. I don't know that for a fact, but I know this: He loves those players.

"He loves them, and he loves the university. So I wouldn't be surprised at all if he stayed at Stanford. That's not to say that I think he's staying there because I don't know, but I wouldn't be surprised."
