According to a source close to Stanford, football coach Jim Harbaugh met Thursday morning with top university officials -- including president John Hennessey -- so that they could make their absolute best offer to try and retain him.

The source did not divulge details of the discussions and the offer, but said that while there's no way to match the rumored 7-8 million annual figure that could come from an NFL team, the school can offer things like greater security and work environment.
Harbaugh met with 49ers team president Jed York and new general manager Trent Baalke for several hours on Wednesday and reportedly appeared close to accepting the 49ers offer. But Harbaugh later met with Miami Dolphins owner Stephen Ross, who flew to the Bay Area in hopes of hiring Harbaugh.

The Denver Broncos have also expressed interest in the Orange Bowl-winning coach and former NFL quarterback.
Michael Malone won't be on the sideline when his Nuggets take on his former team on Monday night.
The NBA announced Monday afternoon that Malone has been suspended without pay for the game against the Kings.
The suspension stems from Malone "entering the court, halting play and making contact with a game official" during Denver's game against the Lakers on Sunday. The incident occurred midway through the second quarter.
Malone was hired as head coach of the Kings prior to the 2013-14 season. He was fired just 24 games into the 2014-15 season.
Coverage of the Nuggets and Kings gets underway at 6:30pm on NBC Sports California and streaming on the NBC Sports App.
The San Francisco 49ers' defensive line will have a new member coming off of the bye week.
The 49ers claimed defensive lineman Sheldon Day of waivers from the Jacksonville Jaguars on Monday. The Jaguars waived Day on Saturday in order to make room for the return of rookie wide receiver Dede Westbrook off of injured reserve.
Day, a 2016 fourth round pick, posted 11 tackles and two tackles in 22 games over the last two seasons with Jacksonville. He played fewer than 30 snaps in all seven games with the Jaguars this season.
Defensive lineman Arik Armstead, defensive tackle Tank Carradine, and defensive tackle Chris Jones are all on injured reserve, while defensive lineman Aaron Lynch missed the 49ers' last game in Week 10.
San Francisco ranks 22nd in the league in sacks, 23rd in pass defense, and 31st in rush defense.
