Las Vegas Setting Odds On Jim Harbaugh Leaving The 49ers

SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) - Jim Harbaugh's future employer is becoming as hotly debated as any election the fall, and like recent presidential races, bookies are now giving you the opportunity to gable on the outcome.

The current 49er head coach is rumored to be the top choice to coach his alma mater - Michigan - and is now a rumored trade target of the Oakland Raiders and New York Jets. All this comes as former 49ers and prominent NFL reporters say he's almost certainly leaving after the season, despite the fact that he has a year remaining on his 5-year $25 million deal. Those rumors have been repeatedly denied by 49ers management.

All that action has proven irresistible for book makers, with Bovada now releasing lines on where his khaki's will be patrolling the sideline next year.

What will Jim Harbaugh be doing by Game 1 of the 2015 Regular Season?

Head Coach of another NFL team 1/1
Head coach of an NCAA team 2/1
Head Coach of the 49ers 3/1
Anything else 15/1

NCAA 2014-2015 - Who will be the Head Coach of the Michigan Wolverines for the 2015-2016 season?   
Jim Harbaugh                            2/1
Les Miles                                  5/2
Butch Jones                              7/2
Mike Gundy                              7/2
Greg Schiano                            9/2

Harbaugh is both the favorite to take the Michigan job and viewed as more likely to coach either a college team or another NFL squad than the 49ers, according to bookies. Has somebody else 'got it better than us?'
