WATCH: That time Harbaugh was caught wearing Michigan St. gear
It’s a safe bet that Michigan head coach Jim Harbaugh, who also played for the Wolverines, isn’t a fan of Michigan State.
But for at least one day in 1999, he intentionally wore Spartan green.
This week, WXYZ-TV in Detroit unearthed footage of Harbaugh celebrating with the 1999 Michigan State basketball team during their national title run.
Why does this exist? Harbaugh’s sister, Joani, is married to Tom Crean, who was then Michigan State’s assistant coach. Crean is now the head coach at Indiana.
Harbaugh probably isn’t thrilled that this footage exists. But if his team beats MSU on Saturday, he probably won’t care.
