Michigan's head coach was the only coach there not in a suit.

There were 14 head coaches at Big Ten Media Days in Chicago earlier this week. Thirteen of them were wearing suits, one was not.

The one who wasn't?

Jim Harbaugh, of course.

The Michigan coach's outfit caused quite a stir on social media, with some liking it and some thinking it wasn't professional.

Here's why he didn't wear one.

"I packed light," Harbaugh told reporters. "I packed a toothbrush and a good attitude."

Good excuse?
