Long before he became coach of the San Francisco 49ers, Jim Harbaugh was a TV star.

In the video below, which has gone viral over the last week, Harbaugh plays himself (this was when he was the starting quarterback for the Indianapolis Colts). In this episode of Saved By the Bell: The New Class, he plays Screech’s cousin and visits Bayside High School (had to look that one up). His appearance occurs at about the 15:00 mark of the video.


Harbaugh is full of lessons and words of wisdom (can’t you imagine him giving some of those same words of advice to Patrick Willis or Vernon Davis)? A funny video that shows a different side of the hard-nosed coach.
