Michigan Wishes Jim Harbaugh Happy Birthday On Twitter For The Heck Of It (Wink Wink)

Real subtle. Amid reports that the University of Michigan is courting 49ers coach and former Michigan quarterback Jim Harbaugh to fill the school's coaching vacancy, the university tweeted happy birthday to Harbaugh Tuesday.

Maybe the school was just wishing him well on his special day?

Yeah, right.

Twitter followers had their fun with the seemingly transparent move. One wrote the school was "pulling out all the stops." Another said, "I bet this will seal the deal."

For The Win noted that not just anyone receives birthday wishes from Michigan. Beyonce got this missive from the university back in September.
