HBO’s Real Sports will be airing a segment next Tuesday on the Harbaugh football family – Jack, John and Jim.
As you all know, Jack served as head football coach at WKU from 1989-2002 – leading the then 1-AA Hilltoppers to a national championship during his final season.
Jim Harbaugh – now the head coach of the San Francisco 49ers – spent time helping his father Jack as a voluntary assistant at WKU while continuing his playing career in the NFL. And as some, perhaps not all of you, know – Jim was pretty crucial in recruiting current WKU football coach Willie Taggart to the school back in the 1990s.
In any event, the special – which I’m told does feature a WKU story or two – is set to air Tuesday, July 19 on HBO.
