ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) — Jim Harbaugh paused during his introductory news conference at Michigan on Tuesday to offer a few kind words to a reporter from the campus newspaper who showed up at the airport when the new coach arrived the previous night.

Harbaugh asked the reporter — Alejandro Zuniga of the Michigan Daily — to stand up and be recognized after talking with the coach and shooting a widely used photo. "That's a go-getter," the coach said.

It was a lighthearted moment for the new coach, who is returning to the school where he played quarterback. Harbaugh arrived at the Detroit Metropolitan Airport on Monday night, and reporters from the Daily followed him from there to a hotel.

"Heck of a job," Harbaugh said Tuesday.
