in heart, Jim Harbo Adds a former player who sets the statistical standard for running appearances in a winged helmet. In his career spanning 2004-2007, Hart created the highest levels of new programs for rush attempts (1015), yards gain (5040), most 100-yard games (28), and most 200-yard games (five). All after he was a somewhat unknown recruiter from Nedrow (NY) Onondaga Central High School. Unheralded despite setting the high school national record for career rush (204) and points (2,246) on his way to a 46-1 record and three official titles.

After displaying Flashes late in the two-loss match against Notre Dame, Hart got a chance to take center stage in the third game against San Diego. He ran 25 times 121 yards that day and never looked back.
After completing his unforgettable career in Ann Arbor, Hart was drafted into the sixth round of the 2008 NFL Draft by the Indianapolis Colts. He spent the next three seasons with the club before a knee injury accelerated his retirement after the 2010 campaign.
Then, in 2011, “Coach” Hart was born.
Hart started his coaching career in Eastern Michigan as an attacking quality coach before he was promoted in 2012 to a full-back coach. In his second and final season, he helped Hart back in Bronson Hill He crossed the 1,000 yard mark for the first time in his career. Hill was the first EMU to return to do so since 2003.

Hart followed this the following year with another new discovery. In 2015 Jamauri Bogan Franklin succeeded as MAC freshman of the year, sprinting 1,051 yards and 16 drops.

In just the first two seasons, Scott put a fast 1,982 yards within just 18 yards of becoming the 14th Hoosier to hit 2000, he was ranked eighth in school history with 20 quick drops, and tied for 10th with nine 100-yard games and 11 In total, 22 TDs (20 bursts, 2 receivers). Scott set the program records for a real new student. These included rushing yards (1137), attempts (228), rushing TDs (10) and 100-yard games (six).

It will also benefit from a higher level of employment than ever before. Until now, Hart’s success in the recruitment path has been built on strong relationships and a rigorous approach. His most noteworthy areas of success were Indiana, Michigan and Central New York. Empire State was especially good for him, producing both Scott and Sampson James (Who flipped Hart away from Ohio.) Respect for Hart is growing in Michigan as well, particularly in the Metro Detroit area.
The pairing with Harbaugh is something many expected would never happen after the verbal sparring between the two in 2007. Ten years later, the hatchet is officially buried when Harbaugh spoke with Hart about the success Tyrone Wheatley As a coach back jogging. Conversations stalled there when Harbaugh chose instead to make more planning adjustments by hiring a second offensive line coach at Greg Fry.
