The clinic, according to the AHSAA release, “provides excellent professional training” for and interaction between member high school and middle school coaches.
Harbaugh, who is 20-6 in his two seasons as Michigan’s coach, isn’t afraid to venture into SEC territory. That includes satellite camps — camps that Alabama coach Nick Saban wasn’t very happy about. Saban likened the satellite camps to the “Wild Wild West.”
Harbaugh, of course, didn’t back down.
"Amazing" to me- Alabama broke NCAA rules & now their HC is lecturing us on the possibility of rules being broken at camps. Truly "amazing."

And now Harbaugh is going to Alabama next month. It won’t be to hold a camp, but he will be seen by Alabama coaches.
The coach has two 2017 recruits from Alabama, too. Four-star WR Nico Collins and 3-star DB J’Marick Woods, according to 247Sports ratings, are both from the state.
