Share post:

The Michigan Sports Hall of Fame announced its 2024 induction class, with recent national champion coach Jim Harbaugh among the honorees.

Harbaugh is being inducted after guiding the Michigan Wolverines to their 10th claimed national championship in January, despite him subsequently leaving the program to coach the Los Angeles Chargers.

Harbaugh, 60, guided Michigan to three Big Ten championships after returning to the school as its head coach after previously playing for the Wolverines as their quarterback.

The high-profile coach is not the only big name in the 2024 class, as the group also includes MLB All-Stars Cecil Fielder and Ivan “Pudge” Rodriguez, hockey contributors Tony Esposito and Ken Holland, footballers Larry Foote, Braylon Edwards and Jake Long, basketball standouts Deanna Nolan and Shawn Respert, and broadcaster Don Shane.

“We have a fitting class for the 70th Anniversary of the Hall of Fame,” Scott Lesher, Michigan Sports Hall of Fame chairman, said. “It’s filled with stars and leaders who made memories that will last for generations. Congratulations to the Class of 2024.”

The class is voted on by a task force comprised of journalists, sports executives and other professionals as well as a general vote from the public.

The induction ceremony takes place Oct. 17 in Detroit.
