Jim Harbaugh hired his son, Jay, as Michigan's tight ends coach and assistant special teams coach, the school announced on Tuesday.
Jay spent the past three seasons working for his uncle, John Harbaugh, with the Baltimore Ravens.
In 2014, he was an offensive quality control coach.
MGoBlue.com posted a video welcoming Jay to the program, which included an interview.
When asked, "Can you tell us something about your dad that we really wouldn't know?" Jay shared a particular story.
“This one time when I was a kid, we didn’t have any milk for cereal and I saw him put Gatorade in his cereal instead of milk. It was the weirdest thing I ever saw ... I didn’t try it – for good reason. That’s not where Gatorade goes.
“That kind of says a little bit about him, he just gets the job done. He doesn’t really care what it takes. Not picky.”
Harbaugh and the 49ers "mutually parted ways" shortly after the team's season-ending victory over the Arizona Cardinals.
Over four seasons in San Francisco, Harbaugh went 44-19-1 and led the 49ers to three NFC title games, and a trip to Super Bowl XLVII.
