The latest reports surfacing on Thursday say Stanford head coach Jim Harbaugh is leaning towards Miami.
The Dolphins are reportedly willing to hand Harbaugh the most lucrative coaching contract in the history of the NFL, and suddenly the game has changed. The San Francisco 49ers were considered the front-runners due to geography.
Harbaugh went to high school in Palo Alto, the same city Stanford University calls its home. A transition to the NFL would not be a major move, considering San Francisco is fairly close to Palo Alto. Many are speculating Harbaugh would favor staying in the Bay Area over going across the country.
So where will Harbaugh end up? It appears to be a two-horse race. Let's discuss the pros and cons of where Stanford's head coach will land in the NFL.
