Jim Harbaugh has reinvented himself over the past few months as he takes on the huge task of rebuilding Michigan football.
During a week that was filled with talk and debate about satellite camps, Harbaugh took to Twitter to extend an open invitation to all college football coaches to join him and his staff in Ann Arbor this summer.
Talk about exposure!
As a Collegial gesture we invite Coaches from Every College to be involved in our football camp. #Compete #ExposureU pic.twitter.com/lMM4ZiSLx2

Brought to the forefront by Penn State’s James Franklin and Notre Dame’s Brian Kelly, the idea of guest coaching at satellite camps is being questioned by SEC coaches who feel their not operating on a fair playing field.
Harbaugh & and other Big 10 coaches will be serving as “guest coaches” at football camps in, among a handful of other states, Alabama and Florida.
SEC coaches are prohibited from doing as such, and Nick Saban led the charge for change.
“If we’re all going to travel all over the country to have satellite camps, you know, how ridiculous is that?” Saban said Tuesday evening according to al.com. “I mean we’re not allowed to go to all-star games, but now we’re going to have satellite camps all over the country. So it doesn’t really make sense.”
