Jim Harbaugh reveals which country Michigan will travel to during the 2019 offseason
The Michigan Wolverines took a trip to Italy two years ago, and this offseason, the team packed up and went to France.
Now that trips abroad have become an offseason tradition for the Wolverines, coach Jim Harbaugh wants to keep them going for the foreseeable future.
On Monday morning, Harbaugh joined WTKA in Ann Arbor and revealed that the Wolverines would be heading somewhere other than Europe in 2019:
“We’re going to (South) Africa,” he said. “We’re going to Johannesburg and Cape Town and we’re going to do a safari. How about that? How about a safari?
“I’m looking forward to it.”
The trips are funded by boosters, and Harbaugh says they are great bonding experiences for his squads, so it’s likely they’ll continue to travel during the offseason.
In Italy, the Wolverines held spring practices, but this year in France, there were no practices. Instead, the team just focused on taking in a new culture and exploring.
