Michigan coaches to hold football camp in Australia
Michigan coaches will hold a camp for football prospects in Australia in June, ProKick Australia announced Tuesday.
All of Michigan’s position coaches are expected to attend. It is still uncertain if head coach Jim Harbaugh will make the trip.
The camp will take place on June 3. Not only will the players receive instruction as they attempt transitioning to football careers, Michigan coaches will be able to get a first-hand look at potential prospects.
The announcement comes after Michigan was firmly in the middle of the NCAA’s spring drama over satellite camps. Harbaugh angered many coaches, namely those in the SEC, by scheduling spring practice in Florida and by aggressively coaching at satellite camps around the country.
The satellite camp practice was briefly banned by the Division I Council, but the decision was overturned by the NCAA’s Board of Directors.
