Last September, Jack and Jackie Harbaugh returned to WKU to be honored at halftime of the Hilltoppers' win against Southern Miss. Jack coached WKU from 1989-2002, winning the 1-AA NCAA championship in his last season.
In an interview with WKU Public Radio the day before they were honored, both parents rolled their eyes when asked what it was like to watch their sons coach in the NFL. They said it filled them with stress and admitted they hated it when the 49'ers and Ravens play each other.
That's exactly what is going to happen now, with the Super Bowl championship going to the winner.
It's not every day you run into a national championship-winning football coach. Jack Harbaugh and his wife, Jackie, are on WKU's campus Friday ahead of Saturday night's game against Southern Miss. The two will be honored before the game in an on-the-field ceremony.
