ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) - Coach Jim Harbaugh says he is staying at Michigan, responding to speculation he's returning to the NFL.

The former San Francisco 49ers coach tells ESPN he's not going anywhere.

Former Ohio State star receiver and Fox Sports analyst Cris Carter has said Harbaugh is a potential candidate to lead the Green Bay Packers and Cleveland Browns.

Harbaugh and the eighth-ranked Wolverines were celebrated Sunday at a banquet. Harbaugh was scheduled to have a news conference following the event.

Michigan won 10 games this season for the third time under Harbaugh but dropped to 0-4 against the rival Buckeyes and fell out of the Big Ten and national championship races.

The Wolverines face No. 10 Florida on Dec. 29 in the Peach Bowl.
