Bobby Knight was also a great coach. He also was a complete butthole that had no class, no respect for others, and treated anybody who dare ask him a question to threats of violence. The guy is a POS. So is Harbaugh. They are two of a kind. So no... not questioning their coaching ability. Just their character. They are both jerks of the highest order and no... I wouldn't want to vote for a team with them as my coach. I'd do anything I could to have Harbaugh run out of town if the Hawks ever hired him.
I've done similar with the Mariners. They are my team. They always will be. But I have vowed not to spend another penny on that team until Howard Lincoln and Chuck Armstrong are shown the door. I didn't watch or attend a Mariners game for the last two seasons because of those two buffoons. I still hope the players do well, I hope Eric Wedge does well. I hope Jack Z. does well. But I won't support the team. I speak with my wallet. If Harbaugh were the Hawk's coach I'd stop buying merchandise, wouldn't pay for NFL Sunday Ticket, etc. I'd wish the team well, but I'd be happy to wait it out until he was removed as coach.
49ers fans are typically as arrogant and ridiculous as Harbaugh though from my experience, so it's a good match. Just as it was for Bob Knight in Indiana, because the people are so ridiculously over the top about hoops there that they let anything slide if you win. Basketball is bigger than God in Indiana, so Bob Knight got a free pass. San Francisco is so desperate to win that they accept Harbaugh's antics.
There is a time when the fans wouldn't though. Their coaches were lowkey and they liked them that way. Walsh and then Seifert were as low key as you could get. Both very calm teachers. Harbaugh wouldn't have been considered for the head coaching job in that era. But after having Singletary and his antics, I think the team put aside their typical attempts at meeting all expectations for excellence in a coach and just picked a guy that would likely win, no matter what a complete jackass he is.
