- Jim Harbaugh may be a Division I football coach, but he’s a father first and foremost.
- As his family is on vacation this week, his daughter offered a hilarious insight.
- Her dad energy on vacation mode is about as relatable as it gets.
With 65 days until the start of the 2022 Michigan Wolverines football season, Jim Harbaugh is taking some time to unwind. The recruiting hiatus is currently in effect, so he can’t contact high school prospects and summer training won’t start for a few weeks.
Now it’s time for college football coaches to take some time off. It is a rare opportunity for rest and relaxation and the Harbaugh family takes advantage of this opportunity by heading to Italy.
Jim Harbaugh’s daughter Grace recently shared a glimpse of her family vacation.
Her dad is in full dad mode and she documented her journey by capitalizing on a current trend on TikTok that was set to the Home Depot theme song.
To begin with, Harbaugh made sure his yard was in order before leaving the country and mowed the lawn. From there, he and his family loaded the car and he drove them out to the airport, looking as fatherly as ever.
Upon arrival, he had their bags checked and had a noticeable excitement about the trip.
Once the journey had begun it was time for an 11 hour layover. Dressed from head to toe in full Michigan gear, Harbaugh was filmed standing on the tarmac, speaking to travel agents, going through his family’s passports and even napping on the airport floor. He exuded his great father’s energy from his process to his posture and the way he stood.
Before boarding, Harbaugh had to get his body and mind in order. With a wrist brace on his left arm, he feasted on some KFC, chatted with other people at the gate, then carried the luggage on his back and led his family to the gate.
Finally, Harbaugh and his family reached their destination. At this point, Jim was finally able to let go and enjoy himself. But the Michigan gear and big dad’s energy didn’t come down. Grace documented him reading on a lounge chair, sitting at the head of the table, eating her siblings’ food and cradling his son on his shoulders in the pool.
The whole saga couldn’t have been better. Harbaugh, though Michigan’s head soccer coach takes up a lot of his time, still finds space in his life to be the ultimate dad. Shoutout to Grace for a peek inside!
