Michigan football coach Jim Harbaugh does pretty much whatever he wants. If he wants to sit ringside at WWE Raw at Joe Louis Arena, you can bet he’ll be there.

He did exactly that.

The Wolverines coach had the cameras on him for a moment on Monday night. He took the opportunity to pump the JLA crowd up.

Harbaugh is a big fan of wrestling — he even spoke to 97.1 The Ticket’s Stoney and Bill in December and advocated bringing Wrestlemania to the Big House.

“I wouldn’t mind seeing that,” he said, explaining that his favorite wrestler is Ric Flair, who made an appearance at Harbaugh’s Signing With The Stars signing day event.

“Why not the Big House?” Harbaugh said. “Why not? 140,000 – I bet we could get in there for Wrestlemania. They’re trying to break the attendance record at Jerry Jones’ stadium in Dallas. (There’s) a great Canadian presence in wrestling. Why not Michigan and the Big House?”
