Tuesday December 30th, 2014

Patriots quarterback and Michigan Man Tom Brady is excited for his former school's new head coach Jim Harbaugh to take over the foundering program, and he let it be known in his latest Facebook post.

"Those who stay will be champions" is a Michigan football mantra that dates back to Bo Schembechler's first season as coach, promising those who committed themselves to the program that they would leave the school as winners.

Both Brady and Harbaugh played quarterback for the school, and Harbaugh was coached by the legendary Schembechler.
