Jim Harbaugh is not just a football coach, but also a valued member of the Ann Arbor community. His contributions to the community have been widely appreciated.
During a severe ice storm on Wednesday night in southeast Michigan, the 59-year-old Jim Harbaugh voluntarily assisted in the clean-up efforts. Despite having no obligation to do so, he chose to help, which was a commendable act.
At approximately 8:00 p.m., Officer Howard Cooper came across a sizable fallen tree at the intersection of Devonshire and Londonberry roads. While he was in the process of clearing the tree from the road, a van approached and stopped beside him.
Cooper threw a pair of gloves to Harbaugh and thanked him for his help. They then worked together for roughly ten minutes, clearing a path on the road for vehicles to safely pass through.
On Thursday afternoon, the Ann Arbor police department released body camera footage of Cooper and Harbaugh working to reopen the road in the freezing rain. The footage captured their joint efforts in clearing the way for traffic.
Upon completing their joint efforts, Cooper complimented Harbaugh by stating that he is a good person.
“Hey, feel free to spread the word on that,” Harbaugh joked back. “Don’t feel like you’ve got to keep that to yourself.
Harbaugh expressed his gratitude to Cooper and his team of officers for their daily service and also thanked them.
On 2/22/23 at approximately 8pm in the middle of the ice storm Ofc Howard Cooper was at Devonshire and Londonderry to remove a large tree that was blocking the road when a van pulled up. The driver then parked and got out of the vehicle. (1/3) pic.twitter.com/FxG3s9t0P7

Despite any criticism Jim Harbaugh may receive, his benevolent act on Wednesday night is a testament to the fact that there is more to him than what may be seen on social media. Harbaugh could have easily decided to avoid the scene, recognized that the road was closed, and chosen an alternative route home.
On a chilly Michigan evening, long after nightfall, Harbaugh chose to confront the adverse weather conditions and help his community. He also made a point of thanking Cooper for his service, despite the fact that Cooper was the one who should have been grateful for Harbaugh's help. While Harbaugh's gesture was admirable, it is worth noting that he appeared to be quite enthusiastic about the prospect of receiving favorable publicity.
