The Los Angeles Chargers are set to meet with Michigan Wolverines head coach Jim Harbaugh on Monday, league sources confirmed to ESPN. While Harbaugh is being considered for the Chargers’ vacant head coach position, neither party is expected to make an imminent decision, with the Chargers set to interview several other candidates as well.

The Chargers’ search for a new head coach began on December 15, when Brandon Staley and General Manager Tom Telesco were fired following a 63-21 loss to the Las Vegas Raiders. The Chargers ended the season 5-12 at the bottom of the AFC West.

Harbaugh has attained major success during his nine-year tenure as Michigan’s head coach. He lifted the Wolverines to another national title last Monday as the Wolverines defeated the Washinton Huskies 34-13 in the College Football Playoff National Championship. He holds a 144-52 college coaching record, winning three Big Ten Conference championships.
