Camping season begins this week for Michigan.
That would be the satellite camp season for the Michigan football coaches. New NCAA rules restrict coaching staffs to working no more than 10 camps away from their campuses in June and July. Michigan went to 40 camps last year, adding to its national brand under coach Jim Harbaugh.
The new rule was put in place to counteract Michigan’s whirlwind tour.
Michigan has not confirmed any of its scheduled camps, aside for its own, but through various reports it has been linked to 10 in nine states. It was linked to a camp at Incarnate Word in San Antonio on June 4, but according to a list of camps in Texas and participants reported by Lone Star Prospects, that no longer appears to be the case.
Some of the camps are scheduled for the same day, which will cause some hurried travel or the splitting up of the coaching staff.
Here’s a rundown of Michigan’s camp schedule, with both the reported satellite camps and the camps it is hosting.
June 2: John Carroll (Cleveland)
June 2: Mercer (Macon, Ga.)
June 3: Michigan specialists camp (Ann Arbor)
June 3: Bowie State (Bowie, Md.)
June 4: Valdosta State (Valdosta, Ga.)
June 4: Old Dominion (Richmond, Va.)
June 9: Tennessee State (Nashville)
June 10: Michigan specialists camp (Ann Arbor)

June 11: UCLA (Los Angeles)
