Pelissero reports the Vikings requested and received permission from Michigan to speak with Harbaugh, which is a standard process for NFL teams.

The team reportedly had an “exploratory conversation with him Saturday afternoon to gauge his interest,” per Pelissero. While nothing further is scheduled as of now, Harbaugh remains a candidate for the job and Pelissero reports that it wouldn’t be surprising if the Vikings bring him to the facility this week.

Harbaugh played 14 years as a quarterback in the NFL and returned in2002 as the quarterbacks coach for the Oakland Raiders.

He went back to the college ranks and returned in 2011 as he signed a five-year deal as head coach of the San Francisco 49ers, where he led the team to the NFC Championship game in each of his first three seasons after the franchise missed the playoffs for eight straight seasons.
