LOOK: Michigan fans name baby 'Harbaugh,' get shout out from Jim

Just as "Saban" has become a more popular baby name in the state of Alabama since 2007, Michigan hospitals are probably going to see "Harbaugh" pop up more frequently on birth certificates. 

Two Michigan fans apparently are among the first, and they not only named their child after Jim Harbaugh (Harbaugh Lee Feetig, born Sept. 1, 2016) but they also sent the coach a congratulations notice.

Harbaugh not only appreciated the honor but sent the family a shout out on Twitter with well-wishes for the family's young son, but no scholarship offer (yet). 

The Harbaugh clan recently expanded, as Jim and Sarah Harbaugh had their seventh child, John, in January.
