On Colin Cowherd and Jim Harbaugh’s Interview From Hell

Jim Harbaugh was a guest on the “The Herd with Colin Cowherd” Wednesday and the two engaged in a conversation (a nice way of putting it) that was almost as awkward as Jim Tomsula’s first introductory press conference as Harbaugh’s replacement in San Francisco.  Cowherd ran through a litany of questions to which Harbaugh either replied with two word answers or just random oddness.  Four minutes in Cowherd called out Harbaugh for his unwillingness to answer “open-ended questions” and shut down the interview.

As one of a zillion writers who interviews athletes on a regular basis but moreover, as ESPN’s founding talent producer (aka booker) back in another life, I have several thoughts on this so-called interview which you can see here.
