Last week it seemed about two were open for the Lehigh game.
Stanford coach Jim Harbaugh is still expected to take the Michigan job after the season but is Pete Carroll working behind the scenes to make sure the 49ers do not hire Harbaugh? Remember, Carroll tried to to get the Chicago Bears to hire Jeff Tedford and Syracuse to hire Chip Kelley when he was an Oregon assistant.
