Watch Jim Harbaugh jump into a pool wearing khakis

Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh but not as much as he loves his khakis.

Michigan football is rolling right now. The Wolverines are sitting atop the Big Ten East, ranked No. 8 in the country and still have plenty of room to improve.

So with a bye week before taking on rival Michigan State at The Big House next Saturday, who can blame the team for taking some time to relax? After all, Michigan is just following its leader. And no one relaxes like head coach Jim Harbaugh.

Case in point: Harbaugh took the team to Michigan’s Water Carnival on Saturday and pulled off a sweet can-opener in the only way he knows how — fully clad in khakis.

It wasn’t a perfect landing, and he did create quite a large splash, but on style points alone Harbaugh gets a 10. His originality, on the other hand, needs some work.

This isn’t the first time this year Harbaugh has taken a dip while wearing his coaching gear. The coach did the same thing back in January to celebrate a recruit’s signing.

Next time he should at least try the Ham Porter cannonball.
