Michigan Fans Celebrate Harbaugh with T-shirts
Former 49ers head coach and Michigan football alumnus Jim Harbaugh will now control the University of Michigan football team. Excitement has been building in Ann Arbor, Mich. surrounding this decision, as Wolverine football fans look forward to the new era. Some fans have made T-shirts to commemorate the new coach. Here are a few of the coolest Harbaugh-related shirts that have popped up surrounding the decision.
Once the rumors started flying that Harbaugh could make his way to Michigan, it seemed that his name was immediately printed in the school’s colors. In September, 247Sports.com posted a shirt supporting what was then still a possibility for Michigan football. The shirt depicted an H modeled after the school’s M logo, with the coach’s name in the center.
Shortly after the decision was formally announced, companies like Elmo’s Main Street T-shirts in Ann Arbor started creating shirts of their own. Elmo’s, celebrating the former Wolverines player’s homecoming, printed shirts that read “Those who come back will be champions.”
Websites such as Etsy have filled up with all kinds of Harbaugh apparel, with shirts depicting the coach's name with the Michigan “M” logo. One shirt reads “Harbaugh’s home,” with the state of Michigan outlined. Many incorporate former uniform number 4.
