After Jim Rome criticized Michigan football coach Jim Harbaugh during a radio broadcast Tuesday, Harbaugh fired back via Twitter Wednesday morning.

The CBS Sports radio host didn't hold back in his critique of Harbaugh, saying in part:

"He runs way too hot and he was wearing people out. Don’t get it twisted now. Great coach, unbelievable coach, I’m sure he’ll do a great job there. But when you have a coach who wins as he wins and nobody is ever sorry to see him leave, that tells you a little something about that guy."

Harbaugh responded to the criticism with this tweet.

And Jim Rome had his own response, making a reference to Michigan's loss to Ohio State last season.


This all started Monday night when Harbaugh walked out of an interview session with reporters after being asked about three freshman missing from the team photo. Harbaugh told reporters two of them had been suspended, but he wouldn't elaborate. Harbaugh then ended the interview session and walked out.
