Michigan football coach Jim Harbaugh may not have the Wolverines competing for a national championship yet, but he has made some impressive progress during his brief time in Ann Arbor.

As a result, his name has been floated as a potential candidate to return to the NFL when the coaching carousel begins.

Some speculation would lead you to believe Harbaugh would be a candidate for the Indianapolis Colts job where he would be reunited with his former quarterback Andrew Luck.

But could it happen?

Well, on Thursday, Harbaugh addressed the situation and it doesn’t look very likely. Harbaugh commented on the rumors in a way that only he could.

Asked Jim Harbaugh about those who continue to list him as a candidate for jobs elsewhere: "That's like warmed up oatmeal. I'm not a fan of warmed up oatmeal."

We’d have to take that as a no.

Currently, Harbaugh has the Michigan program trending in the right direction and they are expected to only get better in 2018 with Ole Miss transfer Shea Patterson giving the Wolverines the quarterback they have long been waiting for.

Could he still leave for the NFL? Sure, but now if he’s looking for some freshly made oatmeal.

The Wolverines cap off their 2017 campaign on New Year’s Day against the South Carolina Gamecocks in the Outback Bowl. Kickoff is set for 12:00 p.m. ET on ESPN2.
