The New York Jets is not so hot right now, something that has led to rumors about a potential head coach change. A popular name that cropped up is that of University of Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh, but the Wolverines coach has made it clear he is happy coaching in the college level.

Nevertheless, it will take more than Harbaugh's words to convince NFL fans that any link to the New York Jets position is fictional. Jets CEO and owner Christopher Johnson may have done just that, issuing a statement that Todd Bowles will remain as the head coach of the team and that there is no truth to the Harbaugh rumors.

Bowles is in his fourth year with the Jets and has, so far, amassed a 24-39 win-loss record, CBS Sports reported. Up next for the Jets will be the New England Patriots, a game that could more or less provide a glimpse of the future of Bowles in New York.

Despite all this, it remains that there is a growing belief that a coaching change is in the offing for the Jets after this season. And while Harbaugh may have been stricken out of the list, it does not entirely mean that Bowles is safe and will continue to call the shots.

For now, Bowles will have to find a way to get through the season despite many asking about his fate moving forward. Some members of the media did just that recently via conference call, seeking his opinion on the Jets coaching change rumors, the NY Post reported. As expected, he hardly answered it and instead told them to ask the person who had reported about Harbaugh joining the Jets. He also added that he preferred not to talk about his job.

As mentioned in a previous post, Harbaugh has no dream of returning to the NFL. He previously coached two seasons with the Oakland Raiders (2002-2003) and the San Francisco 49ers (2011-2014). It was with the 49ers where he is best remembered, leading the team to Super Bowl XLVII before heading back to the college ranks.

It is possible that the Jets are trying to avoid talking about the coaching change with the NFL season still ongoing. It may be out of respect for Bowles. Regardless, the belief right now is that the Jets will be in for a coaching change. The only thing there is that Harbaugh will not be that guy.
