Every time the University of Michigan football job is vacant or the coach becomes embattled, NFL coaches and brothers John Harbaugh and Jim Harbaugh are quickly linked to the Wolverines' head-coaching position.
Over the past six months, Harbaugh has stoically moved on from the least successful year of his head-coaching career. He overhauled his coaching staff, executed a review of the organization's ways and while privately fuming, he served as a public supporter to several of his troubled players.
Ravens strong-side outside linebacker Elvis Dumervi's bruised, sprained ankle is cooperating well enough that he's practicing for the second consecutive day. It's an encouraging sign for Dumervil, who returned to practice on a limited basis Friday.
Given that track record of success after defeating the San Francisco 49ers in Super Bowl XLVII, Harbaugh is maintaining his low-key approach and staying the course. When asked if he's consulting with other coaches that have won championships as far as how they attempted to defend their titles, Harbaugh indicated he'll continue to consult with his usual advisors.
