Jim Harbaugh plans to invite the Obamas to be honorary Michigan captains in 2017
Jim Harbaugh is looking to add a couple big power players — actually, political power players — to his honor roll of honorary Michigan captains in 2017.
At his quarterbacks camp in Ann Arbor on Saturday, the Wolverines’ head coach said he plans to invite Barack and Michelle Obama to join a list that includes Tom Brady and Michael Jordan.
“We’re making those asks, those official asks,” Harbaugh said, per Mlive.com. “Yeah, we’re in the process of making an official ask.”

Harbaugh has worked with Michelle Obama in the past on an education initiative. And although the coach knows it will be a long shot, he’s taking his chance.
“Well, we’re going to ask,” he said. “He’s still a busy man. (But) that’d be something.”
