University of Michigan football coach Jim Harbaugh wants former Wolverine Tom Brady to be immortalized on campus.

On his podcast “Attack the Day,” Harbaugh called for a statue of Brady, who played college football at Michigan, to be erected on the university grounds.

“I think it’s time, don’t you, for a Tom Brady statue to built right here,’’ he said. “Right in front of Schembechler Hall, or do you put it in the stadium? Where would you put the Tom Brady statue? … The tunnel? Maybe the tunnel? Where do you put it? Maybe some of the listeners can tell us.’’


Brady threw for 4,773 yards and 30 touchdowns during his four seasons in Ann Arbor. He is ineligible to be inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame.
