A former Wolverine said it’s one of his favorite details of the Michigan head coach.
Former Michigan cornerback Jourdan Lewis was asked today at the NFL Scouting Combine to reveal a “crazy” story about his college coach, Jim Harbaugh.
There surely are plenty, but he didn’t give one.
Lewis did though give us this detail, though: Harbaugh wears cleats on chartered flights to Michigan’s games.

This apparently is somewhat well-known, actually.
Here’s a photo of Harbaugh wearing cleats on a chartered plane, from a New York Times photo feature on the Michigan head coach.
“Yes, Jim Harbaugh does wear cleats while flying on airplanes.”

Harbaugh’s love for cleats isn’t confined to just fields and chartered flights, either.
Former Michigan wide receiver Amara Darboh said that he doesn’t think he’s ever seen the Wolverines’ head coach not wearing cleats.
“I’ve never seen him in tennis shoes,” he said.
Darboh asked about most interesting thing about Harbaugh — the fact he wears cleats everywhere "I've never seen him in tennis shoes"

Jim Harbaugh is a weird dude.
