Michigan Health Link: Jack Harbaugh’s New Outlook After Heart Attack and Bypass Surgery

4/15/17 Football spring game

Nearly three years after a heart attack and quadruple bypass surgery, retired football player and well-known coach Jack Harbaugh says he simply feels grateful.

And the former University of Michigan football assistant coach — whose son, Jim, now leads the Wolverines — knows his past habits aren’t perfect.

“I was the classic ‘things not to do,’” says the elder Harbaugh. “I had no doctor, I was taking no medication whatsoever… I knew I was putting on weight but I didn’t address it.”

The health scare prompted the 79-year-old to make some important changes in his life to ensure he can keep enjoying precious time with his grandchildren and his wife, Jackie.
