If you are hoping to catch a glimpse of Jim Harbaugh during the month of June, you better not blink. Harbaugh will be all over the country in June as he keeps quite the busy satellite camp schedule.
According to MLive.com, Harbaugh’s satellite camp total is now up to 26 with a new camp at USF with Willie Taggart was announced on Monday. The USF camp was previously cancelled but is back on, which means one more stop for Harbaugh down to the Tampa area. Harbaugh took Michigan’s football program down to Bradenton, Florida for spring practices over Michigan’s spring break.
Harbaugh will step foot in 14 different states in addition to his many camps within Michigan, spanning from Connecticut and New Jersey down to Alabama and Florida and out to California with stops in Texas along the way. Throughout those spots, Harbaugh will be representing the Michigan program along the side of programs like Georgia, Ole Miss and Mississippi State (that should be interesting), Baylor and more.
There is no limit to how many satellite camps a coach may work, although if there is going to be any amendment to the satellite camp rules this may be where it realistically starts. The shutting down of the satellite camps was hasty and rushed, but given more time to attempt to bring everyone on a more similar plane may result in a limit in how many camps a coach or program may work in the offseason when traveling out of state. But for now, Harbaugh continues to play by the rules in an effort to improve his program.
Harbaugh will also be racking up the frequent flyer miles, which is always a nice perk.
