Seahawks ST coordinator Jay Harbaugh on what he’s learned from his dad

Earlier this week the Seahawks introduced their three new coordinators to the media in a press conference at the VMAC. First up to speak was special teams coordinator Jay Harbaugh, who will be getting his first experience as a coordinator at the NFL level. He had previously worked with new head coach Mike Macdonald on the Ravens as their offensive quality control coach back in 2012-2014.

Most of Harbaugh’s coaching experience has been paired with that of his father Jim, who was the Seahawks’ greatest nemesis in the Legion of Boom years when he was head coach of the 49ers. From 2015 all the way up to this past season when they won the national title, Jay served in a ton of different roles under his dad at Michigan.

Here’s what Harbaugh said when he was asked what he’s learned from his dad.

Harbaugh takes over a relatively strong special teams unit that had performed well the last few seasons under Larry Izzo. If they can find a more dynamic kick and punt returner to replace DeeJay Dallas this might become one of the best units in the league.

As for Jim, he’s left Michigan and returned to the NFL, taking over as the new head coach of the Chargers.
