Jim Harbaugh has called another coach through Twitter.
And this one lives nearby.
The Michigan soccer coach struck a Mark Dantonio on Michigan State football via Twitter on Monday afternoon.
"Saw Coach D comments that he continues to" focus "on how" he "can beat Michigan," wrote Harbaugh. "Congratulations for turning the team over 3-9, plagued by problems outside the field, good for BIG to have it back." On Sunday night, Michigan (8-4) was chosen to play in the Outback Bowl over state rival Michigan State (9-3).
The Spartans have a victory lead advantage against Michigan this season and Dantonio now has a 2-1 record against Harbaugh. Both victories of Dantonio on Harbaugh arrived at the Stadium of Michigan.
When asked about the bowl situation on Sunday, Dantonio pointed to the scoreboard.
"Well, I only see it as the opportunity to play in the Christmas Bowl at this time," Dantonio said. "You know, the records are what they are, I will continue to concentrate on beating Michigan, and things will be sorted out in some way."
Less than two hours after Harbaugh's initial tweet on Monday, Dantonio sent his reply.
"For all Spartans, it's not over, it will never end, it's just getting" [hashtag] SpartansWil "Monday's remark was the last of a low season Twitter thread for Harbaugh during his first two years in Michigan
Harbaugh took Twitter hits against Georgia coach Kirby Smart and now former Tennessee coach Butch Jones was also once the sporting director of Ohio State Gene Smith in the spring of 2016.  At that time, Smith had commented on how he felt Michigan was in the process of "launching his program" after he chose to head to IMG Academy in Florida for spring practice.
Harbaugh He took it as a snapshot and went on Twitter taking out the "tattoo fiasco" from Ohio State as of 2010.
"I felt that someone was shot above the bow. It was not an instinctive reaction, I waited a good eight or nine hours, "Harbaugh said bluntly on Saturday afternoon." I thought you might consider that it could be interpreted in a certain way towards our program, (like) some of the scribes and experts they interpreted in that way. When no explanation came, I thought it was time to shoot one on his bow. I consider things even now. "
In this case, of course, Harbaugh seems to be heading for the tumultuous offseason of the state of Michigan after a 3-9 season in 2016, where the Spartans fired four players (Josh King , Donnie Corley, Demetric Vance and Austin Robertson) who were accused of badual badault.
In total, Michigan State had 13 players who left the program before the start of the 2017 season. Four of them were dismissed.  Michigan and the state of Michigan are scheduled to meet in East Lansing on October 20, 2018. The Spartans have won eight of the last 10 meetings between the two rivals.
