Michigan Football Coach a Big Fan of Steak and Milk

November 3, 2015 01:49 PM

If you want to be a "Michigan man" and play football for the Wolverines you'd better eat beef and drink milk.

On Monday night University of Michigan head football coach Jim Harbaugh shared on his radio show the "natural steroids" that are part of his diet regimen

"I truly believe the No. 1 natural steroid is sleep and the No. 2 natural steroid is milk, whole milk," Harbaugh says. "Three would be water. Four would be steak."

While the World Health Organization may believe eating red meat is a cause for cancer it sounds like Harbaugh isn't buying that line.

"I take a vitamin every day," Harbaugh says. "It's called a steak."

That line also appeared in the Will Ferrell comedy "Kicking and Screaming" with Robert Duvall's character sharing that same diet advice.

Earlier this year during a press conference Harbaugh told a young Wolverines fan what it takes to be a good quarterback: 

"Drink as much milk as your little belly can hold. Drink it at all times. It could be chocolate milk. It could be the two-percent, but the ideal is the whole milk. That's the ideal."
