Watch Jim Harbaugh on 'Saved By The Bell' in 1994

Jim Harbaugh has accomplished plenty throughout his career. He played quarterback at Michigan, spent 15 years playing in the NFL, led the San Francisco 49ers to the Super Bowl as a coach and now has the Wolverines as a ranked team just four games into his first season as head coach. They'll open Big 10 play this weekend at Maryland.

PREVIEW: No. 22 Michigan at Maryland

But all of that pales in comparison to what is surely his top career achievement. We’re of course referring to Harbaugh’s cameo on “Saved by the Bell” in 1994.

In this classic clip, Harbaugh plays Screech’s cousin and helps Eric learn a lesson about what being a hero is really about.

As far as celebrity cameos go, Harbaugh’s acting isn’t all that terrible. Still, it’s absolutely hilarious to watch him deliver cheesy sitcom life lessons with a straight face. The only thing worth critiquing from this classic performance is the wardrobe. Where are the khakis, Jim?
