Fantastic! When did Coach Harbaugh attend Paly? Did his brother go there, too? Assuming he played football at Paly, how did the team do when he was on it?

Harbaugh played on the 1980 and '81 Paly football teams......the '80 team went 9-2......the '81 team was 5-4.....he graduated from Paly in 1982......John Harbaugh did not attend Paly

Did they take his poor behavior into consideration? I remember him back in the day - although older than me, he was a decent enough sort at the time - until he displayed his arrogance in memorable ways.
