The Denver Broncos’ coaching search appears to be in an uncertain spot, and it may have led them back to a candidate who was seemingly out of the picture already.

Denver7 insider Troy Renck said he believes, based on speaking to sources, that the Broncos circled back to Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh even after the announcement that he would remain with the Wolverines.

The Broncos appear to think highly of San Francisco 49ers defensive coordinator DeMeco Ryans, but he might prefer to take a different job. That might leave Denver in a difficult spot, as one other target has taken himself out of consideration and another seems to have some reservations about the job.

Harbaugh announced on Jan. 16 that he would remain at Michigan for at least another season after another round of flirtations with NFL teams. He has yet to actually sign a new contract since then, so it would make sense for the Broncos to test his resolve, but they are apparently out of luck.
