New Michigan football coach Jim Harbaugh hired his 25-year-old son, Jay, to be the team’s tight ends coach.

Naturally, Jay Harbaugh has some stories to tell about the elder Harbaugh, who was formerly a quarterback for the Chicago Bears.

Jay skipped the appetizers and went straight for a main course with his first anecdote.

“This one time I was a kid, we didn’t have any milk for cereal,” Jay Harbaugh told Michigan’s athletic website. “He put Gatorade in the cereal instead of milk. It was the weirdest thing I ever saw.

“I didn’t try it. For good reason. That’s not where Gatorade goes.”

Well, that depends. There are plenty of intriguing combinations of cereal and Gatorade flavors…

In any case, Jay Harbaugh used the story as a way to make a point about his dad.

“That kind of says a little bit about him, he just gets the job done,” Jay said. “He’s not picky.”

If Michigan emerges as a contender again in the near future, I propose Gatorade and cereal to be the new breakfast of champions.
