Jim Harbaugh is an incredibly wanted, in-demand coach right now in the world of football. Jim Harbaugh is also a bit of a raging lunatic.
And maybe that's why the San Francisco 49ers are looking at getting rid of their head coach despite him completely turning around the franchise in the last few years.
It comes from the year 2007, when Harbaugh was in his first season as the head coach of the Stanford Cardinal, before Andrew Luck rocked up.
Before a game against San Jose State, Harbaugh gave a sort of motivational speech that he wanted nothing more than to be right by their side's in battle during the game. He wanted this so badly that he informed his players that he wanted their blood on him if they bled. Seriously.
And Harbaugh got what he wanted.
In the game, right tackle Chris Marinelli ran off the field with the rest of his offense after a touchdown drive, his arm bloodied. He went straight to Harbaugh to show him.
'Harbaugh looked at the blood and did exactly what he said he would. He took his hand and wiped it on Marinelli's arm. The player's blood was on the coach's hands.
Then, Harbaugh took it a step further. He smeared Marinelli's blood all over his own face like war paint.'
"(Harbaugh is) standing on the sideline with the offensive line, really jacked up, screaming, yelling, jumping around with blood smeared on his face," said Chase Beeler, one of the team's offensive linemen.
Jim Harbaugh is a pathological maniac, hire him at your peril Michigan/Oakland/terrible NFL side.
