Michigan head coach Jim Harbaugh is making headlines today for what he allegedly told a former Wolverines' quarterback. It's not great.

Harbaugh, according to former Michigan quarterback Wilton Speight (who transferred to UCLA), is not a fan of chicken.

From Bleacher Report:

How do you explain the Harbaugh Experience? Former Michigan (and current UCLA) quarterback Wilton Speight tells a story to sum it up nicely. Early in his Michigan tenure, Harbaugh pulled Speight aside and told him not to eat chicken, a protein that is considered fairly safe by nutritionists. When Speight asked why, Harbaugh said, "because it's a nervous bird."

"He thinks some type of sickness injected its way into the human population when people began eating white meats instead of beef and pork," Speight says. "And he believes it, 100 percent."

Of course Harbaugh thinks chicken is a "nervous bird" and doesn't want his players eating it.

Naturally, Harbaugh is getting roasted on social media for this.

Stay away from chicken, apparently. Or, maybe, Jim Harbaugh.
