Jim Harbaugh references being 'on a milk carton' during suspension
Jim Harbaugh is a football guy through and through, which left him in an unusual position to start the season. While serving a 3-game suspension, Harbaugh was not allowed to be in Michigan Stadium on gamedays.
In Week 4, Harbaugh returned to the sidelines as the Wolverines rolled to a 31-7 win over Rutgers. After the game, Harbaugh admitted he was given a lot of “welcome backs” but noted he never left, he was just “not where I was supposed to be.”
He also referenced being “on a milk carton,” along with defensive back duo Rod Moore and Will Johnson who were out for the first few weeks of the season. All 3 were back Saturday.

Jim Harbaugh: “Everybody kept saying “welcome back,” “welcome back.” I never left, just wasn’t where I was supposed to be. … There’s nowhere I’d rather be than on the sidelines coaching our team.”

Harbaugh went on to say he couldn’t think of a better place to be than in the locker room after a win:
“Just no better place to be than in the locker room after you win a game and everybody gets in there. You just think who can have it better than I do? Who can have it better than us? Get to coach these guys and these coaches,” said Harbaugh. “I was super happy, no doubt about it. I could tell, the coaches and the players were even happier than their coach.”
“Who can have it better than I do? Who can have it better than us?”
