Jim Harbaugh joins Oakland Athletics coaching staff for the day

Harbaugh Oakland 2

University of Michigan head coach Jim Harbaugh may have turned down a chance to coach the Oakland Raiders, but he has accepted the offer to coach for the Oakland Athletics, even if it’s only for a day.

Harbaugh happens to be a good friend of Athletics manager, Bob Melvin, who invited him to suit up as a guest coach for the team. The two actually played baseball together when they were younger. Harbaugh will wear No. 4 and is expected coach first base for a couple of innings when the Athletics square off against the Los Angeles Angels on Saturday.

Hopefully for Michigan fans, Harbaugh does not get too comfortable coaching baseball and returns to Ann Arbor sooner than later.

Here are a few more tweets regarding Harbaugh and his baseball coaching experience.
