Is this really the type of person who we want coaching Michigan football:
1. Punched Jim Kelly and had to miss several games - hurting his team because of the broken hand.
"Indianapolis Colts quarterback Jim Harbaugh broke a bone in his throwing hand Saturday when he punched former Buffalo Bills quarterback and current NBC-TV analyst Jim Kelly in the head because of negative comments Kelly made about Harbaugh a week earlier. Harbaugh told ESPNEWS, "I regret throwing the punch, but I felt I had to do something since my toughness was being questioned." http://www.highbeam.com/doc/1P2-746436.html
2. Coach arressted for DUI during season
ENCINITAS, Calif. - University of San Diego football coach Jim Harbaugh was arrested early Sunday on a charge of drunken driving after being stopped for running a stop sign.
Harbaugh, a former NFL quarterback, was released after 7½ hours at the Vista Detention Facility. He is to appear in court in December.
“I’m upset at myself about it, and more embarrassed for everyone else around me, the team,” Harbaugh said Wednesday. “My No. 1 concern is the players. I’m trying to set a good example for them. There’s a consequence for making poor decisions and now that applies to me.” http://nbcsports.msnbc.com/id/9902673/
3. I was at Michigan when Harbaugh was quarterback. One night he tried to get in a fight with one of my friends "Do you want to play 'fistball"? was the clever line he used.
4. He was a good quarterback. And he may be a good coach (what was he in his third season something like 8-5?). But I'm not sure what kind of a person he is. I do know that I don't want to take the chance that his selfish and unstable behavior, as demonstrated over a long period of time, will embarrass our great university.
