Michigan Looking At Paris, Normandy And London For 2018 Spring Football Trip

Michigan is looking at Paris, Normandy and London as possible destinations for a spring football trip in 2018.

The Michigan Wolverines are likely headed back to Europe next spring, according to head coach Jim Harbaugh after he took a "straw poll."

“Right now we’re looking into going to Paris, and then Normandy, and then London, finish up in London for the spring game,” Harbaugh said, per The Michigan Insider.

Of course, Harbaugh and the Wolverines spent some time in Rome back in April for spring practice and some sightseeing.

"Rome was great, there was so much to see," Harbaugh said. "One of the things we thought about after the trip was to go to multiple places. Not just stay in one place. There was so much to see in Rome it was unbelievable. There is in Paris but we're there to see Paris, Normandy and London is the way we're striving for."

Michigan used three of its allotted 15 spring practices to practice in Rome, but for next year's trip, Harbaugh is still undecided about how he will potentially split time between the three cities.

“Haven’t decided yet,” Harbaugh said of U-M’s practice schedule. “We would like to practice in Paris and in London, in those two places split up the practices this time.”

Earlier this week it was revealed that the trip to Rome cost Michigan in the $750,000 - $800,000 range, and it was all funded by an anonymous private donor. Next year's trip will likely be funded the same way.
