Jim Harbaugh

In a football program renowned for its rich history of great quarterbacks, Jim Harbaugh stands out as one of the finest. Completely rewriting the Michigan passing record books, Harbaugh's skill and poise led the Wolverines to a Big Ten title in 1985, and a Fiesta Bowl victory in 1986. The nation's most efficient passer in 1985, Harbaugh went on to set several school records, including a single season mark of 2,729 yards. Honors that followed included Michigan's Most Valuable Player, Big Ten Player-of-the-Year, third in Heisman voting, as well as finishing second in the nation in passing efficiency. Became the first quarterback in Wolverine history to throw for over 300 yards in a single game. Harbaugh earned first team All-American honor from the Football News in addition to being named to the Big Ten All-Academic Team. He was also named second team All- American by AP and UPI.
