Michigan spent nearly $350,000 on its spring break trip to Florida, reports the Tampa Bay Times’ Matt Baker.

According to the report, $146,912 was spent on the facility at IMG Academy in Bradenton, $107,148 on airfare, $51,395 on ground transportation, $39,519 on meals and $3,580 on miscellaneous expenses.

The controversial trip, spearheaded by head coach Jim Harbaugh, angered several coaches around the country and raised questions about whether or not satellite camps should be allowed by the NCAA. 

Satellite camps were later briefly banned by the Division I Council, but the decision was ultimately overturned by the NCAA in April.
