ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- Former Wolverines quarterback and current San Francisco 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh is "at least 'considering'" an offer to be University of Michigan head football coach for $49 million, says ESPN.

The report cites "multiple NFL and Michigan sources" that claim the school has offered Harbaugh $8.17 million a year for six years, which would make him the highest-paid college football coach.
