WATCH: Jim Harbaugh storms out of press conference

A rare experience took place on Monday, as members of the Michigan Wolverines media actually got a chance to ask questions of football head coach Jim Harbaugh.

We’re guessing by how things went during that media session, it may be a very long time before one of those sessions happens again. That’s because Harbaugh got agitated by one reporter asking about the status of three players who did no appear in the team picture that was taken as camp started.

Those three players were all freshmen — Kareem Walker, Ahmir Mitchell and Shelton Johnson. What little Harbaugh did reveal about his team was that two of those three were suspended from the team and 247Sports later identified them as Mitchell and Johnson.

Harbaugh gave as little information as possible, and it wasn’t good enough for reporters who were trying to find out the lengths of suspension and possible names. After Harbaugh told reporters once that the matter would be dealt with internally, Harbaugh then scolded reporters for prying too much and stormed off, ending the press conference.
