Michigan students will have a 'Khaki Out' for Jim Harbaugh

Monday December 29th, 2014

Jim Harbaugh is expected to be announced as the new head coach of the Michigan football team on Tuesday, so the school's student fan group "Maize Rage" is celebrating with a planned "Khaki Out" at the Wolverines' basketball game on Tuesday night.

Harbaugh has long been associated with his beloved Khaki pants, which his wife claims he buys for $8 at a local Wal-Mart. The pants even became the centerpiece of a hilarious ad campaign starring the Harbaugh family.

Michigan has been hoping to land Harbaugh since head coach Brady Hoke was fired after four seasons and a 31-20 record.
