Jim Harbaugh explains why he didn’t go to senior prom
Jim Harbaugh may have been a star quarterback at Palo Alto High School in 1982, but apparently not all star high school quarterbacks are the prom king.
While speaking with the media on Monday, Harbaugh was asked a lighthearted question about high school homecoming dances. The Michigan coach said he attended them when he was an underclassman, but he didn’t go in 11th grade and also did not go to his senior prom.
Harbaugh asked about HS homecoming dances, he says he went in 10th grade but not 11th. He did not go to senior prom either — “I didn’t have a date.”

Is that a surprise? Sort of, but not really to those of us who have followed Harbaugh’s career. We know he’s a very strange cat, so it makes sense that he wouldn’t do all of the traditional things a high school quarterback did.
You’ve probably heard people say, “Never change, Jim.” Stories like this one confirm that he hasn’t and probably never will.
