He spoke with reporters at a news conference on Thursday.

Harrison said there are two goals: beating Michigan and winning a Big Ten title are motivators for coming back and leaving the door open.

“Still undecided,” he said Thursday. “Coming into this year, I wanted to beat that team up north and win the Big Ten Championship and obviously I did not do that this year. I think it’s a great motive to come back if that’s what I decide to do.”
