Jim Harbaugh screams at children in a new commercial

Sep 10, 2013, 3:09 PM PST

Only 53 men have the privilege of getting yelled at by 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh on a daily basis.

Now, Harbaugh could bring his enthusiastic brand of coaching to your kids’ football team as well. In a new Visa commercial, the 49ers’ head coach is shown giving a spirited lecture to a group of youngsters as an example of what could be considered a “football fantasy.”  

The credit card company wants fans to write out their own football fantasies in order to be entered in a contest. Based on Harbaugh’s trademark sideline antics and input on proper punching techniques, he might make an interesting choice.

The reward would probably overshadow any risks involved, though. Harbaugh has proven his methods work. He turned around the Stanford football program and brought the 49ers to the Super Bowl in just his second year with the team.

At least he isn’t offering to shave his eyebrows off.
