Michigan Wolverines football coach Jim Harbaugh spent some time with former President Barack Obama and former first lady Michelle Obama earlier this week. He hopes to be getting more face time with them this fall.
Harbaugh said he will ask the Obamas to serve as honorary captains for a Wolverines home game this season.
“We’re making those asks. Official asks,” Harbaugh told reporters Saturday. “In the process of making an official ask. There’s been, ‘Hey, we’d like you to do it,’ and now we’re doing official asks.”
Harbaugh said he spent “39 wonderful minutes” with the former president Wednesday during a visit to Washington, D.C.
Harbaugh’s son Jay, who is the Wolverines’ running backs coach, posted a picture of the visit on Instagram.
