    His stadium is true, but with HC candidates often playing owners against each other, could be Ross is sending Cowher a message that he can and will explore all options. Just speculating.

    I think that would be a mistake. Jim barely has a college football resume. He just finally turned Stanford around with two winning seasons, for that u should get promoted to a bigger college like Michigan not a NFL team

    That's exciting. I will be pissed if Sparano returns. Nothing against Sparano, but we truly have regressed.

    You beat me 2 it. I was going to say that he was telling him how productive the meeting with Tony went.

    Maybe he was talking about the great work Omar Kelly does for the Sun Sent.

    Or congratulating him on a good season and making a BCS game. Welcoming him to Miami and wishing him luck in tonight's game. Probably had the same conversation with Frank Beamer as he is the owner of the stadium.


    Or he offered Harbaugh the Dolphins job and got him to sign a contract at the 50 yard line...

    Both are Michigan guys so it's safe to say there is a relationship there outside of looking for a HC. IMO people should be talking about Harbaugh going to the NFL to be an OC given his resume. I can't believe he is such a hot HC candidate - amazing!

    Definitely did NOT discuss the Miami job. He was just schmoozing.

    BUT, he very well could have asked him what he's doing after the game. With Jon Gruden and Jim Harbaugh both in town and Tony Sparano's fate up in the air, I can almost guarantee that Stephen Ross is NOT getting to bed early tonight. He's going to be out there post-game talking to one of the two, and at that point they WILL talk about the Miami job.

    Well Ross gave the U of Mich a $100 million endowment. If you're there to major in accounting, marketing or related, you'll be studying it in the Stephen M. Ross School of Business. So don't discount the possibility that Ross is telling Harbaugh "Don't count on the Dolphins to leverage your highest asking price with Denver and SF, we've already ****ed up on a hotshot college coach or two, BUT you should strongly consider taking your talents to Ann Arbor".

    wrong, Harbaugh was an assistant offense coach with the Raiders in 2002, then the Qb coach with the Raiders in 2003.

    He then accepted the Head Coaching job at University of San Diego, a perennial doormat, and took them to records of 7-5, 11-1, and 11-1 with back to back Championships.

    He then moved to Stanford, where he has brought that program back to national prominence.

    Jim Harbaugh also interviewed for the New York Jets job in Jan 2009, which was ultimately given to Rex Ryan. So its not like he hasn't coached in the NFL already, and had consideration for a head coaching position as well.

    I doubt ross would discuss the job with him the day of the bowl game... Harbaugh had his mind set on the game and nothing else and ross knows that..

    Thats nothing. Did you see fiftyofhaze in his authentic Cam Wake jersey? Why are these reporters wasting their time watching what Steven Ross does and who he talks to?

    I also thought it was quite tasteless for the ESPN reporter to ask him just after they presented the trophy standing up there in front of his team after the biggest game of their careers and asked if he was coming back or what his timeline was on making a decision on staying. So, I wouldn't put it past anyone.

    Thought Jim and Andrew handled all of those questions well, though.
