Jim Harbaugh Michael Jordan Story

Earlier this month, Michigan announced that it would become the first Nike school to sport the Jordan brand logo on its uniforms, instead of the company's traditional Swoosh. Apparently, Michael Jordan himself even called Wolverines head coach Jim Harbaugh to talk about the deal. It turns out Harbaugh initially didn't believe he was talking to the former NBA superstar.

Thursday, Harbaugh, during his press conference ahead of the team's opener against Utah, made it clear that at first, he couldn't believe it was actually Jordan on the other line. Check out his reaction:

Michigan will remain with adidas until the 2016 season, but it's clear that the Wolverines and their fans are pumped for a new era in 2016.
