Michigan Hires Father of Top 2019 Dual-Threat Quarterback

Jim Harbaugh thinking about DAT ass.

Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh makes no bones about it: He will do whatever possible to bend NCAA rules to the breaking point, whether it's forcing the organization's hand on satellite camps or international trips during institutional breaks.

Harbaugh is also a pioneer on another front: Hiring the parent/old coach of a recruit. He hired the mom of Wayne Lyons, a Stanford transfer, as a director of player development in 2015.

He hired Chris Partridge, former coach of Paramus Catholic, before signing the nation's No. 1 recruit, Rashan Gary of Paramus Catholic, 13 months later.

Harbaugh's latest hire is Michael Johnson Sr., who up until Monday afternoon coached The King's Academy in Sunnyvale, California:

Perhaps most importantly to Michigan fans, Johnson is the father of Michael Johnson Jr., already one of the top dual threat quarterbacks in 2019.

This is also another calculated stroke against the NCAA:

Say what you will about Harbaugh's antics. It's a helluva way to defeat the army of bagmen that pervades college football.
