Michigan Wolverines Head Coach, Jim Harbaugh, held a media session ahead of the College Football Playoff semifinals
In a recent press conference, Michigan Wolverines head coach, Jim Harbaugh, made headlines by sharing a hypothetical star rating for Jesus as a high school football player. With the Wolverines set to face the Alabama Crimson in the upcoming game, Harbaugh took the opportunity to engage in a larger conversation about the impact of sports analogies in everyday life.
Jesus, a Hypothetical Five-Star Recruit
Harbaugh’s statement that Jesus would have been a five-star recruit sparked intrigue among reporters and fans alike. The Michigan coach pondered how Jesus, if he were to return to earth in this modern era, would likely incorporate sports analogies into his teachings.
“I have a feeling that if Jesus were to come back now in this era, I suppose that many of the biblical analogies he’d use would be about sports as well as agriculture. Solomon would’ve been a great coach. Jesus would have been a five-star. He would’ve been a HOF (Hall of Fame) coach,” Harbaugh told reporters.
Harbaugh’s Comparison to Moses
In addition to his hypothetical musings about Jesus, Harbaugh drew comparisons between himself and the biblical figure Moses. Expressing pride in his coaching staff, he likened his reliance on them to Moses leaning on his staff.
“I couldn’t be more prouder of our coaches and our players. Like Moses, I am going to die leaning on my staff,” Harbaugh said. “And nobody could have a better staff to lean on.”

The Wolverines will face the Alabama Crimson in the Rose Bowl, one of the College Football Playoff semifinals, on New Year’s Day at 5 p.m. EST. Meanwhile, the will compete against the Washington Huskies in the Sugar Bowl on the same day, vying for a spot in the national championship game in Houston.
