Schembechler related an amusing anecdote to the Times, remembering one day when he stepped into his office and found Harbaugh, then a 9-year-old, with his feet propped on the coach's desk.

Schembechler said he later told Jack Harbaugh about the incident, adding, "You know, I like that boy of yours. I like his attitude."
