Michigan Wolverines head football coach Jim Harbaugh has never been one to bite his tongue.
On Thursday, the 53-year-old sent a shot at ESPN's Paul Finebaum, who Harbaugh (perhaps intentionally) referred to as "Pete":

As noted by Awful Announcing's Matt Clapp, Finebaum has been critical of the Wolverines for some time, even calling their fanbase a "whiny and sniveling bunch."
But on Wednesday, the 61-year-old media personality took issue with Harbaugh for hiring the father of an elite quarterback prospect, Michael Johnson Jr., to his staff.
Update: Friday, Feb. 17 at 10:55 a.m.
According to Matt Prehm of DucksTerritory.com, Michael Johnson Sr. has been hired by Oregon as a wide receivers coach.
The reason for the Harbaugh-Finebaum beef isn't even heading to Ann Arbor.
---End of update---
Finebaum called Harbaugh an "evil genius" but accused him of cheating and "blatantly disregarding the spirit of the NCAA rule" on ESPN's Outside the Lines.
Here's the full video:
Keep an eye on Harbaugh's Twitter account. He might not be through responding to "Pete."
