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?

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.
