The 59-year-old man would also be very popular, he who would also have been contacted by the Denver Broncos.
Harbaugh was the head coach of the San Francisco 49ers from 2011 to 2014 and quarterbacked for several NFL teams from 1987 to 2001.
He joined the Wolverines in 2015, after being fired by the Californian club. This season, he led the University of Michigan club to the national semi-finals.
Going back to the Panthers, the organization pushed head coach Matt Rhule out the door in mid-October when the team was 1-4. With Steve Wilks as interim pilot, the Carolina squad did better, but they are still guaranteed to be excluded from the playoffs.
This is the fifth consecutive campaign where the Panthers have not been in the postseason.
