“We’re making those asks. Official asks,” Harbaugh said, via ESPN. “In the process of making an official ask. There’s been, ‘Hey we’d like you to do it,’ and now we’re doing officials asks.”
As seen in a picture posted by Harbaugh’s son Jay, the Wolverines coach met with the former President while visiting Washington, D.C. on Wednesday.
“It was incredible,” Jim Harbaugh said. “Saw Mrs. Obama as well. He was great. He was really relaxed, working on a lot of things. Shared a lot of insights.”
