Jim Harbaugh confirms Michigan heading to Paris, Normandy next spring
The overseas travels for the Michigan football team will continue in 2018, head coach Jim Harbaugh confirmed on Tuesday at B1G Media Days.
After the team returned from its trip to Rome this past May, Harbaugh hinted that his team would travel to Paris and London next season. And on Tuesday, he confirmed the Wolverines will be headed to Paris in the spring of 2018, but have replaced London with Normandy:

Michigan’s Italy trip was somewhat controversial this year, but it was mostly perceived as a terrific opportunity for student-athletes to experience a different culture. The Wolverines practiced three times while in Rome.
The trip cost around $800,000, but the price tag doesn’t seem to deter Harbaugh, or the university, from pursuing another trip abroad.
