Jim Harbaugh is returning to the NFL after agreeing to become the new head coach of the Los Angeles Chargers.

Harbaugh ends his nine-year stay at Michigan just weeks after winning the national championship with the Wolverines.

It is his first job in the NFL since he coached the San Francisco 49ers from 2011 to 2014.

Harbaugh would have been the highest-paid coach in college football next season but has chose to succeed Brandon Staley in Los Angeles.

The Chargers teased the announcement on Wednesday night, posting a video of white smoke filling the air – a sign that a group has reached a consensus in choosing a successor.

Jim Harbaugh will be the new head coach of the Los Angeles Chargers as he leaves Michigan just weeks after delivering the national championship to return to the NFL

Jim Harbaugh is returning to the NFL after agreeing to become head coach of the Los Angeles Chargers job.

The 60-year-old was in Los Angeles for a second meeting with the Chargers on Wednesday and he is now expected to stay in California.

Intriguingly, the Chargers are scheduled to play the Baltimore Ravens next season – meaning Jim will take on brother John Harbaugh once again. 

Harbaugh has been linked to several head coaching vacancies in recent seasons, interviewing with the Minnesota Vikings and Denver Broncos.

The Chargers fired Staley and general manager Tom Telesco in December after a disappointing season that culminated in a humiliating 63-21 loss to the Las Vegas Raiders.
