Meet Jim Harbaugh, college hoops manager

INDIANAPOLIS—A spot in the NFC Championship game and recognition as the NFL’s coach of the year are two things that can open up a lot of doors. Free dinners are just the tip of the iceberg.

That’s why it was humorous to see San Francisco 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh on the floor at the Indiana-North Carolina Central college basketball game in Bloomington Wednesday night serving as the Hoosiers’ team manager, per Larry Brown Sports.com.

Harbaugh’s sister is married to Indiana head coach Tom Crean, who put his brother-in-law to work on Wednesday night picking up folding chairs after timeouts, among other things.

Bloomington is approximately one hour from Indianapolis, where Harbaugh is staying for this week’s NFL Combine.

No word on whether or not the Niners coach was involved in a postgame handshake incident with North Carolina Central’s team manager.
