Jim Harbaugh is an American football coach currently serving as the head coach of the University of Michigan’s Wolverines team. A former quarterback who played in the NFL for 14 seasons, Harbaugh comes from a family of football enthusiasts. His father Jack was a coach and so is his older brother John, the head coach of the Baltimore Ravens.
Harbaugh will be looking to pass down the football genes to his kids; he has seven children from two marriages. He was first married to Miah Harbaugh from 1996 to 2006. The marriage produced three children; Jay, James, and Grace before coming to an end. In 2008, Jim married Sarah Feuerborn and the union has so far produced four children; Addison, Kathrine, Jack, and John.

He told her that he was an NFL quarterback but Miah did not believe him. They would however later exchange contacts and meet up the next day for lunch.
What followed next was an on-again, off-again relationship that started in 1991 and lasted for five years before they got married in 1996. Jim and Miah Harbaugh exchanged vows at a private ceremony held in the Hilton Waikoloa. The duo subsequently moved in together and wasted no time in starting a family of their own.

Jay, however, appears not to be Jim’s biological son as he was born before his mom met and began dating the football player. Regardless, Jim adopted him and he has become very much a part of the family.

Jay was born in San Diego in 1989. He played football at Oregon State University as a defensive lineman but a knee injury ended his career.
