It was something. It ended with Cowherd cutting off Harbaugh after a painfully awkward interview that lasted about seven minutes. Cowherd tried to engage Harbaugh with about 15 questions, to which Harbaugh gave a series of short answers.
Then it got weird.
“This feels like one of those where you ask like 50 questions,” Harbaugh said.
“I want Jim Harbaugh, the guy,” Cowherd responded. “I’m a 4.3 wide receiver. Why should I play at Michigan?”
From there, it got worse, and at one point Harbaugh asked his first question.
“What can I do to make your interview better?” Harbaugh asked.
“I’m just asking open-ended questions and you have not much to say,” Cowherd responded.
Cowherd cut off the interview from there, then fired a parting shot at the end of the segment.
“If I’m an 18-year-old kid and just heard Jim Harbaugh on my show, I’m choosing Urban Meyer and Ohio State,” Cowherd said.
Here's the entire interview from Cowherd with Harbaugh:
UPDATE: Harbaugh and Cowherd continued the back-and-forth on Twitter on Wednesday afternoon:
In my experience of participating in interviews, I've found it takes 2 to produce a clunker! I'll take 50% responsibility 4 this clunker.— Coach Harbaugh (@CoachJim4UM) July 1, 2015
