Jim Harbaugh trips on his way to podium at Michigan press conference

Tuesday December 30th, 2014

Jim Harbaugh's return to Michigan has been talked about for months, so by the time he was finally announced as the Wolverines' next head coach there was a lot of anticipation, and even more media, in Ann Arbor.

That is why what happened next is a real nightmare scenario.

Harbaugh owns the stumble pretty well, and he does not fall on his face, which would have been so embarrassing he would have to immediately quit and never leave his house again.
