Report: Miami Dolphins check out Jim Harbaugh

By Cindy Boren

The Miami Dolphins and Jim Harbaugh? Hmmm...

The Dolphins, according to a report by the NFL Network's Jason La Canfora, have had multiple conversations with the Stanford coach, whose services are wanted by the University of Michigan (where Rich Rodriguez should learn his fate soon) and at least two other NFL teams (the San Francisco 49ers and Denver Broncos).

The Dolphins had not been previously mentioned in the Harbaugh talk and still happen to have a coach in Tony Sparano, but it would be "hard for him to survive," the NFL Network's Steve Wyche reports, with Bill Parcells no longer with the team. Carl Peterson, a friend and advisor to Dolphins owner Steve Ross, attended the Orange Bowl game between Harbaugh's Stanford team and Virginia Tech, conveniently located in the Dolphins' backyard.

Sparano met with Ross on Monday, La Canfora reports, and there's no timetable for determining his future with the team. "That's open-ended right now," the source told La Canfora.

I could see Harbaugh going to Carolina and drafting Andrew Luck #1.

AsstGM, I could see that happening. Good point. What a win-win situation for both Luck and Harbaugh.
