Still waiting on a decision from Jim Harbaugh

Are you tired about hearing all the “Where will Jim Harbaugh go?” talk?

Good, because I’m tired of writing about it and seeing it everywhere I turn on TV and the Internet.

Ravens coach John Harbaugh is getting just a little tired of answering questions about it, too.

Asked again today about where he thinks his younger brother, who coaches Stanford, will end up coaching next season, the elder Harbaugh flashed a smile.

“I’ve been talking to him about it,” John Harbaugh said. “You want a comment on that, I take it? I honestly do not know what he’s going to do. It’s a tough decision. He’s got some great choices.

“The thing I always try to say is he loves Stanford, he loves the players there, he loves the people there. That’s a big factor. Obviously, (quarterback) Andrew Luck is coming back, and he and Andrew have a great relationship. But I don’t know what he’s going to do.”

Jim Harbaugh has been linked to a number of NFL coaching jobs, but at this point, it’s looking more likely that he’ll go back to Stanford with a fat, new salary.

Of course, that could change any minute now. The way these negotiations have gone the last few days, the Nippon Ham Fighters of the Japanese baseball league might pop in and offer Jim a deal.
