No matter how hard we try to ignore once-and-future NFL coach Jim Harbaugh, we can’t. Usually, it’s his own fault.
One day before Ravens coach John Harbaugh pulled his brother’s name back into the NFL conversation by comparing Joe Flacco’s toughness to a two-dollar steak and quickly pointing out that it wasn’t one of Jim’s sayings, Jim appeared to consume something almost as tasty.
Video of the Michigan coach on the sideline at Saturday’s game against Central Michigan seemed to show Jim picking his nose and consuming the contents. (On the scale of disgusting things coaches can do while they know or should know everyone is watching, it’s hardly at the top.) On Monday, Jim Harbaugh denied that there was any harvesting or consumption of nasal material.
“I have never eaten a booger in my entire life,” Harbaugh said with a laugh, via MLive.com. “That might have looked like what was happening. But I think if you rub your nose and then you bite your fingernail, that’s not eating a booger now. . . . There was no booger eating. Let me clear the air. For clarity here, for the record, I have never eaten a booger in my entire life.”
