Jim Harbaugh wants to bring the Obamas in as Michigan game captains this season
Michigan's coach has a lot in store for the 2017-18 season and beyond
Jim Harbaugh was working with the youths on Saturday, offering advice on technique, work ethic and more at his annual quarterback camp in Ann Arbor, Michigan. It was mostly pretty routine Harbaugh stuff until he met with the Michigan media to discuss his recent trip to Washington, D.C..
Harbaugh was in the nation's capitol to represent the Legal Services Corporation, the largest funder of civil legal assistance for low-income Americans. While in town, Harbaugh said he got a chance to speak with Barack and Michelle Obama.
"It was incredible," Harbaugh said, via MLive.com, of the meeting. "Spent 39 wonderful minutes with President Obama, saw Mrs. Obama as well. He was great. He's relaxed, working on a lot of things. A book. He shared a lot of insights."
But that's not all: Harbaugh said that Michigan is "in the process of making the official ask" to get the Obamas to Ann Arbor as honorary captains for a Wolverines football game in 2017.
A collection of stars as honorary captains has been a staple of the Harbaugh era with Michael Jordan and Tom Brady both accepting the invitation in 2016, but getting a former United States President and First Lady in the Big House would make for a truly unique experience for the players and fans on hand.
Harbaugh also mentioned the results of a "straw poll" for next spring's overseas trip. Nothing has been booked, it seems, but the Wolverines are currently eyeing a trip that would include Paris, Normandy and London.
