(Part-2) Chargers interview Jim Harbaugh, but Rooney Rule obligations grow.

From 2007–2010, he oversaw a cultural shift at Stanford, transforming an unsuccessful program into a 12–1 record and eventual Orange Bowl champion. Do you remember in 2007 when, despite being a 41-point underdog, the Cardinal pulled off one of the biggest upsets in college football history by defeating USC? Harbaugh was that.

He put a stop to the misery at Michigan by winning the Rose Bowl and the national title game this season, snapping a six-bowl losing run. Do you recall the fourth-down convert that Michigan's Wolverines used to beat Alabama in Pasadena earlier this month? Harbaugh was that.

Although he has not officially stated his intention to leave Michigan, I fail to understand why he would remain. He has arrived at the peak of their mountain. He can only fall from this height. On top of that, he has interviewed with NFL teams for three straight offseasons and has retained the services of famous NFL agent Don Yee to help him negotiate his next deal.

He was almost a sure bet to sign with the Vikings two years ago. Unfortunately, his interview with the Vikings was a complete bust. He didn't act as though he would be cooperative with the football staff of the Vikings. He seemed haughty and out of place. It had no effect.

Wishing you a more seamless interview with the Chargers. It is my sincere wish that they would be lenient with him. He's unique. He's challenging. Still, he has that irresistible charm that can bring the disparate Chargers players together and divert attention away from the charming Rams. Even though Sean McVay possesses one of the game's most brilliant brains,

Although the Chargers are in the market for a new general manager, they may appoint Harbaugh first because of his significance, and then bring in a boss who can complement him. You need not really hand him the franchise's keys, but you should make them easy for him to obtain. Then you can sit back and enjoy the show.

The Spanos family does not, in fact, conduct business in this manner. They last employed a coach with head coaching experience in the National Football League almost ten years ago. The three most recent recruits were Anthony Lynn, Brandon Staley, and Mike McCoy

Head coaches with huge salaries are seldom hired. Famous head coaches are not hired. On the other hand, they have never been in Los Angeles, where they are about to burst onto the scene amidst all the hype. If the Chargers are interested in Jim Harbaugh, he is available.
