From College to Pro: A Cautionary Tale for Jim Harbaugh

Will either Harbaugh or Luck jump to the NFL? Both? Neither?

To quote Will Ferrell's Mugatu character from Zoolander, "That Jim Harbaugh is SO hot right now." 

Amid all the football coaching movement—firings, promotions, etc.—there's really only one major coach who is coveted, instead of being fired. 

On the heels of an Orange Bowl thumping of Virginia Tech on Monday night, Jim Harbaugh of Stanford is generally thought to be on his way out to bigger and better things.  He is wanted by a laundry list of schools and NFL teams looking to fill a vacancy, and the thought is that he will take one of his suitors up on their sure-to-be lucrative offer to leave Stanford.  There's been speculation that he will jump to the NFL with his stud quarterback Andrew Luck and try to plan a reunion with their chosen team, but that is a long shot.  

I have a cautionary tale for Mr. Jim Harbaugh, that even though he's walking on clouds in the NCAA right now, history shows that a move to the NFL might be a rude awakening for a career college coach.
