“I think he’s good for college football.”

Coaches among the NCAA’s Football Bowl Subdivision have been answering questions about Michigan head coach Jim Harbaugh since he took the maize and blue reigns in December of 2014.

A man new to the head coaching fraternity, University of Hawaii’s Nick Rolovich, is not new to Harbaugh.

The two spent time together this June in Honolulu at a co-hosted satellite camp by the Rainbow Warriors and Wolverines.

“When we finally got together at the camps he said ‘This guy might be a little crazy too.” Rolovich recalled with a laugh.

“He’s fun to be around he’s high energy, he’s done a lot in football and he seems to make it fun. I can dig on guys like that.”

Like Harbaugh, Rolovich avoids the standard coach speak, preferring ingenuity and personality to promote his program.

“You want to talk about a guy who has fun and cares about his team.” Rainbow Warrior slot back Dylan Collie said.

“He loves football. The media aspect is another completely different story but for loving football the way he does, and he brings out kids and all of us, it makes it more exciting. It makes every day exciting. I love coming to practice playing for him.”

Hawai’i and Michigan will kick off in Ann Arbor Saturday morning at 6:00 am HST. The game will air live on ESPN.
