Notes: Analyst argues the Detroit Lions need Jim Harbaugh

Many names have already been floated for the newly vacant Detroit Lions head coaching gig, but one sports analyst says the answer is already here in Michigan.

Though he wears many hats in sports media, Rob Parker wrote a column for Deadspin arguing University of Michigan head coach Jim Harbaugh should be considered for the job.

As you’re well aware, the Lions announced Friday the organization is parting ways with general manager Bob Quinn and head coach Matt Patricia. There seem to be a few way-too-early front runners for the head coach position from Detroit media, including San Francisco 49ers defensive coordinator Robert Saleh and Kansas City Chiefs offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy.
