Jim Harbaugh: I Called My Future Wife 9 Times After Meeting Her


Jim Harbaugh is the consummate winner because he never gives up on himself, even if it crosses the lines of stalking. Harbaugh has always avoided being a quitter, and the story about how he met and courted his wife should tell you everything you need to know.

The new Michigan Wolverines coach recently did an interview with HBO Real Sports and revealed how he met his wife, Sarah. Harbaugh says from the moment he saw her, he knew that she was a “winner.”

“Sarah was there getting take-out … I went up to her and asked if I could meet her. So, she said, ‘Sure you can meet me.’ I didn’t believe her, at first. I thought it was one of those fake numbers she was giving me. But I called her. Multiple times. Like, nine times before she returned my call.”

He just had to convince her — which he did, after about 9-10 calls.
