It has been exactly nine years since legendary Michigan football coach Bo Schembechler passed away on the eve of the “game of the century” between Michigan and Ohio State in 2006, but Jim Harbaugh still gleans a lot from his mentor and former coach. On Tuesday, Harbaugh took to Twitter to shed some light on his memory.
In addition, Harbaugh was asked about Coach Schembechler on a Big Ten conference call, and he shared this quote (via MLive.com):
“Coach Schembechler’s a daily source of inspiration. He remains that for me and all of the people he coached or is associated with. Today’s a special day in remembering coach Schembechler.”
Anyone who follows Harbaugh on a regular basis has undoubtedly heard the current head coach refer to Schembechler, and that is to be expected for someone who played for the man from 1982 through 1986. Still, being a “Michigan man” still means a great deal to some around the program, and that makes it no surprise that Bo Schembechler remains at the center of everything that happens at Michigan.
