Jim Harbaugh models his behavior after SpongeBob SquarePants

Michigan Wolverines head coach Jim Harbaugh is a big fan of SpongeBob SquarePants. Seriously.

In fact, Harbaugh is so inspired by the animated sponge that he said he models his every day behavior after him. What a bizarro world. But, hey, there are worst role models to have.

“I love his attitude, he attacks each day with an enthusiasm unknown to mankind,” Harbaugh said, via the Free Press. “I model my behavior by him. What a great employee he is. He is a go-getter, he’s always got a bounce in his step. He’s got pizzazz, he puts his heart and soul into making those patties. I think he’s awesome.”

The comments come after Harbaugh was the butt of a joke on The Simpsons.


““People have been making sport of me since I can remember,” Harbaugh said. “My earliest memories, 5, 6, 7, 8, in the schoolyard. People would make sport of me. But it was pretty high class being on The Simpsons. It’s one of my favorite shows.”

Jim Harbaugh is awesome, and his taste in animated television is impeccable.
