Jim Harbaugh’s unconventional spring trips are proving to be just as unforgettable for the staff as they are for the players.
The Michigan football team is in France for a seven-day trip to explore the European country and while at the Palace of Versaille, grad assistant James Ross decided to pop to his girlfriend, Omnielle Jordan.
The French castle known as a royal château was built in the 11th century and is now a popular museum and tourist attraction. Pretty sure fire way to put a ring on it.

Ross was hired as a defensive assistant in early February. The linebacker played 50 games for Michigan from 2012-15.

Last year the team went to Italy and this year they’re in France. But instead of holding practicing overseas like they did last year, Harbaugh and his staff have elected to make this trip solely about sight-seeing and team-bonding.

According to Mlive.com, a group of roughly 150 people, made up of players, coaches and their families and staff members traveled to France from Ann Arbor.
