ESPN played a little word association game with 14 FBS head coaches.
The word? Jim Harbaugh.
Among the words used to describe him — different, eccentric, interesting, classic, wow, an amusing character, aggressive, an exciting guy.
Some coaches, like Auburn’s Gus Malzahn, Louisville’s Bobby Petrino and Florida’s Jim McElwain, were either silent or opted to not give an answer.
Ohio State’s Urban Meyer called Harbaugh “an excellent coach.”
