In two seasons under Jim Harbaugh, tight end Delanie Walker caught 40 passes for 542 yards and six touchdowns, but he also grew accustomed to seeing peculiar behavior from his former head coach.
So when asked about a shirtless Harbaugh leading practice with Alabama campers earlier this month, the former 49ers pass catcher wasn't shocked.
"It didn't surprise me one bit,'' Walker told The Tennessean. "Harbaugh doesn't surprise anyone. He does whatever he feels like doing. Truthfully, I think Harbaugh still thinks he's a player, not a coach."
The nine-year veteran saw plenty of unimaginable moments from Harbaugh, including the time he suited up in full pads as the No. 3 quarterback in practice.
"He dressed up in full gear and practiced the whole practice – pads, helmets, everything on. He had the whole uniform on,'' Walker said of Harbaugh. "We came out and said, 'Who is that dude out there?' And it was Jim Harbaugh. He had some old high top cleats on."
"I think he is going to be great (at Michigan),'' Walker said. "People buy into his philosophy. Every team he has ever been on has been good, right? So you tell me what he is going to do. Young kids love to have a coach who is crazy."
Walker has grown into a formidable receiving threat in his two seasons in Tennessee. The 30-year-old has 123 receptions for 1,461 yards and 10 touchdowns in 30 games as a Titan.
