Jim Harbaugh shared a tribute to Bo Schembechler on Friday, 11 years after the Michigan coaching legend died.
“He passed 11 years ago today, but not a day goes by where Bo isn’t with me, our Team & everyone who knew him,” Harbaugh wrote on Twitter. Harbaugh also posted a picture of himself and Schembechler from his playing days.

Schembechler coached Michigan for 21 years before retiring from the sideline in 1989. He coached many of the program’s best players, including Harbaugh, who was a Michigan quarterback from 1983-1986.
Schembechler passed away on Nov. 17, 2006, the day before No. 1 Ohio State played No. 2 Michigan. Harbaugh also spoke about what Schembechler meant to him on this day last year, the 10th anniversary of his death.
“Not a day doesn’t go by where we talk about Bo,” Harbaugh said in 2016. “So many others that knew him, like a brother, like a dad, like a best friend. It doesn’t seem like it’s 10 years since he’s been gone. You think about him a lot, almost every day. You have a memory or a reminder of Bo. It’s great to be reminded of how Bo did things. And it’s great to have a reminder of all the people he touched and affected. A convo with Bo was like having a convo with a best friend. That can’t be replaced. It lives on.”
