Dad-pant-loving former Niners coach Jim Harbaugh has found a sweet deal as the new head coach at Michigan. Not only has he negotiated a seven-year, $35 million contract with the Wolverines, but fans in Ann Arbor also appreciate his khaki pants obsession in ways that San Francisco never did. According to Levi's Unzipped blog, "Michigan students successfully executed the first-ever 'Khaki Out' at the basketball game where Harbaugh was officially introduced on December 30. Harbaugh, one of the Dockers brand's most loyal fans, ironically greeted the crowd in a suit."
In case you forgot, Harbaugh filmed a PSA for Dockers last year about the dangers of dad pants so the Levi's owned brand was, no doubt, delighted by the overwhelming beige show of support. Let's see if they can keep the khaki love going by outfitting Harbaugh in Michigan Game Day khakis.
