Video: Jim Harbaugh Tells His Daughter To 'Suck It Up,' Wife Gets Mad

If you had to sum up Jim Harbaugh in one word, "intense" would probably be a good choice. Michigan's head football coach is always taking things very seriously. He's a football guy in the truest sense.

We saw a great example of this in the Wolverines' new documentary that debuted on Amazon Prime. "All of Nothing: The Michigan Wolverines" was released on the streaming service earlier this week. It features a great clip of Harbaugh and his family.

Harbaugh and his wife, Sarah, are sitting in what looks like Michigan's football facility with their 6-year-old daughter, Katie, who's having something done to her ear.

"Suck it up, Katie," Harbaugh says.

His wife does not appreciate this.

"Jim, she's 6 years old," Sarah replies.

Harbaugh laughs. Check it out:

That was pretty great. Here's some more information on the documentary, from the Detroit Free-Press:

The university was paid $1.5 million from The Montag Group — the producer of the series — for access/licensing and an additional $750,000 (from TMG) for site access. The school also had heavy editing rights per a contract, which meant it could scrap anything it didn't like.

Still, the eight-part documentary — available now via Amazon Prime — does its best to paint a portrait of what was an incredibly challenging season it was for Jim Harbaugh's Wolverines while also getting deeper behind the scenes with some of the personalities inside the program.
