Jim Harbaugh is dealing with controversy at the University of Michigan, but that hasn't kept NFL teams from showing interest in hiring him.

According to a report, Harbaugh is drawing interest from the Chicago Bears and Carolina Panthers.

"(Panthers owner David) Tepper and Harbaugh had conversations last year," Dianna Russini said in her report.

"It obviously didn't pan out, but this was something that they discussed. ... That's a name I'm hearing again. The Chicago Bears are another organization ... (that has) had some conversations about that, depending on what decision they make with this coaching staff that is in place."
