Jim Harbaugh is a man of his word.

The ex-Michigan coach made good on a bet with his former players by getting a "15-0" tattoo ahead of the Wolverines' national championship ring ceremony Saturday.

Harbaugh - who left the Wolverines to join the Los Angeles Chargers this offseason - said in January that he promised Michigan players that he'd get his first tattoo if the team went undefeated.

The Wolverines beat Washington to win their first national championship since 1997, completing Harbaugh's nine-year mission to return his alma mater to glory.

The 60-year-old joined Michigan in 2015 after a successful run with the San Francisco 49ers. He amassed an 89-25 record with the Wolverines and led them to three playoff appearances.
