Jim Harbaugh’s staff inspired Ryan Partridge to hunt for a high school head football coaching job, a mission he completed when Livermore hired him for that role in mid-March.
Partridge’s cousin Chris, Michigan’s linebackers and special teams coach, has invited Ryan to the Wolverine facilities in Ann Arbor numerous times, the new Cowboys coach said.
“I had dinner with Jay Harbaugh, Jim’s son, and my cousin Chris. They heard me talking football and my passion, and they just pushed me and pushed me to apply for head coaching positions,” Partridge said. “That was a huge part of me deciding to do that.”
