Video: Brady Quinn explains why he’d play for Jim Harbaugh over Nick Saban

During his time with the Notre Dame Fighting Irish, Brady Quinn was one of the most promising quarterbacks in the nation. Quinn recently joined the Dan Patrick Show to discuss the landscape of the NFL and college football.

During his appearance, Quinn was asked about the controversial satellite camp trend, taken to the next level by Jim Harbaugh.

After saying that he expects the NCAA to eventually regulate the camps, Patrick pushed for an answer on a rather intriguing question: Would you rather play for Harbaugh or Alabama’s Nick Saban.

“I don’t know, it’s tough,” Quinn said, as transcribed by Saturday Tradition. “I mean, Nick Saban has the championships so I think you’d probably have to go in that direction at least at this point, but I think you’d have much more fun with Jim Harbaugh. Looking at it, maybe I’d change my mind because Harbaugh has more of the NFL pedigree, at least from when he was there and the success he had. And he was a former quarterback with a lot of success as well, so maybe he’d be able to see more eye-to-eye with you as a player.

“So as much as it pains me to say because I really wouldn’t want to play for either, I’m a Notre Dame guy, but I’d have to maybe say Harbaugh in this case.”

Score another one for Jim Harbaugh.

Since taking over at Michigan, Harbaugh has done an incredible job at generating buzz and hype for his program. He has shown that he has a great grasp n what college recruits are looking for and being able to offer a more friendly and fun environment could lead to more and more recruits committing to the Wolverines as their success on the field continues.
