With a face-to-face meeting now set up for Wednesday, Michigan’s Jim Harbaugh has a good chance at becoming the next head coach of the Minnesota Vikings.

For fans of the Minnesota Vikings, the last few days have been a bit of a roller coaster, and a bunch of it has had to do with the possibility of Michigan’s Jim Harbaugh becoming the team’s new head coach.

This past weekend, the Vikings reportedly had a meeting with Harbaugh to discuss the team’s head coach opening, and now things seem to be picking up a little more steam.

On Monday, it was revealed that Harbaugh will be flying to Minnesota on Wednesday to have an in-person interview with the Vikings according to NFL Media’s Tom Pelissero.

Michigan’s head coach traveling on Wednesday to meet with an NFL team about a possible job is incredibly significant since Wednesday is also National Signing Day in the college football world. Harbaugh probably wouldn’t participate in an interview on this day if he had any intention of remaining the head coach at Michigan.

In addition to Harbaugh, Minnesota also has three other candidates in the mix for their head coach vacancy. However, Harbaugh should be the one who the Vikings select to be their franchise’s next head coach, and there are multiple reasons to explain why he should get the job.
