Jim Harbaugh, Michigan conducting summer satellite camps again
Jim Harbaugh and Michigan football will again conduct summer satellite camps out of state.
After he sparked the ire of SEC coaches with a nine-city coaching tour around the South last summer, it was reported Friday that Harbaugh and the Wolverines staff would again travel to conduct camps, including one at Bob Jones high school in Madison, Ala., outside of Huntsville.
Critics asserted that Harbaugh’s camps were purely for recruiting purposes last year, creating some controversy. The SEC and ACC prevent coaches from working at camps more than 50 miles from their respective schools. The Big Ten has no such rule, enabling Harbaugh and Michigan to travel and instruct high school players.
Among the frustrated parties last year were Alabama head coach Nick Saban and ACC commissioner John Swofford.
