Harbaugh thinks very highly of Brady.
After winning Super Bowl 53 on Sunday, it became clear that New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady is the greatest football player of all time. Love him or hate him, there is absolutely no denying his greatness and his contributions to the beautiful game of football. One of those people that thinks highly of the quarterback is former NFL head coach Jim Harbaugh, who is now coaching the Michigan Wolverines of the NCAA. Of course, Michigan is also where Brady spent his college years so Harbaugh and Brady have had a bit of a connection over the last few years.
During an episode of Harbaugh's podcast "Attack Each Day: The Harbaughs' Podcast," the Wolverines coach talked about how phenomenal of a player Brady is and how he deserves some type of honor at the University he played for. The following clip was taken by TMZ Sports.
"Tom Brady -- greatest of all time -- and he's lapped the field in football. He's lapped the field," Harbaugh said. "You're synonymous now with Babe Ruth, with Michael Jordan. The university that he attended should build a statue."
Brady wasn't a highly-touted quarterback coming out of college and infamously ran one of the worst 40-yard dashes of all-time. Despite that, Brady didn't let any of the chatter affect him and has gone on to be the best ever at his position.
