According to reports, the Michigan Wolverines head coach is heading to Minnesota and is expected to land the Vikings job. With a return to the NFL seemingly imminent, let’s meet Jim Harbaugh’s wife, Sarah Feuerborn Harbaugh, and their children.

Jim Harbaugh has been with the Wolverines for the past seven years in what has been an up and down period with the Michigan Football programme. The Wolverines posted a a 12-2 record this year with a win over Ohio State and No. 3 national finish. However, they were heavily beaten by the Georgia Bulldogs in a College Football Playoff appearance.

Harbaugh has been in the NFL before, going 44-19-1 in his four years with the 49ers, almost winning a Super Bowl in his first season. While seemingly on the cusp of the Vikings head coach job, let’s find out more about Jim Harbaugh’s family.

Harbaugh hopes to land Vikings head coach job

Although he has yet to be confirmed as the new Vikings head coach, reports suggest the interview “will be a formality”.

According to Ian Rapoport, Harbaugh will head to Minnesota with the confidence he’ll land the job and take over as head coach. Furthermore, The Wolverine reports Harbaugh wasn’t in his office on Tuesday and has reportedly said “goodbyes” and “thank yous” to the team:

The move would also make sense given new Vikings general manager Kwesi Adofo-Mensah worked with Harbaugh in San Francisco. While anything can still happen, it seems Harbaugh is destined for the Vikings job.

Jim Harbaugh’s wife, Sarah Feuerborn Harbaugh

Jim Harbaugh’s wife is Sarah Feuerborn Harbaugh. She was born on 20 September 1978 in Belton, Missouri. Sarah’s father is Alta Feuerborn and her mother is Merle Feuerborn. She grew up with ten siblings in Kansas City. 

Sarah is a former real estate agent and starred in mini-series documentary All Or Nothing: The Michigan Wolverines. She also appeared in the series Mike & Mike, which was her last television appearance. 

Jim and Sarah have an interesting back story. They randomly met in a Las Vegas parking lot when he was in town for a coach’s convention. Jim was recently divorced and initially Sarah played pretty hard to get.

A feature in KCTV Kansas City (via Bleacher Report) said: “When he (Jim) first started talking to her, she wouldn’t talk to him. And he chased her, and chased her and chased her.”

Jim and Sarah eventually started dating and tied the knot in 2008.
