Jim Harbaugh Visits Kansas Basketball Practice, Nails Half-Court Shot

What does Jim Harbaugh do when he isn’t strutting on the sidelines for the San Francisco 49ers in his signature pleated khakis? Looks like he’s draining long-range jump shots (still wearing his pleated khakis).

Harbaugh, dressed in his standard 49ers gameday attire, was visiting the Kansas Jayhawks to give a pep talk before their game with Texas Tech in Lawrence, Kansas when he decided to take part in the pre-game shoot around. ESPN’s cameras were rolling when he popped a half-court shot and drained it, drawing stunned reactions from the college players.

After the shot, the newly-inspired Jayhawks went on to blow out the Red Raiders 82-57.

Despite rumors of turmoil between Harbaugh, team brass and even his players, Niner faithful will likely be encouraged to see that the head coach was fully decked-out in his 49er gear. There was no word if the newly-discovered shooting skills have changed the asking price in a potential trade deal with Cleveland.
