Attack each day with an enthusiasm unknown to mankind. That is the mantra that Jim Harbaugh lives by, played by and now coaches by … one that was instilled in him by his father, Jack, at a very young age. That enthusiasm permeated the San Francisco 49ers organization immediately upon his hiring as the 18th Head Coach in the storied history of the proud franchise on January 7, 2011.
