The NCAA’s recruiting wars have given birth to satellite football camp wars, and University of Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh has been the warlord of sorts during his traveling quest for nationwide dominance, so it should come as no surprise that he’s involved in the latest battle.
As Texas A&M and the University of Houston held a joint satellite camp at Coppell (Texas) High School, a promotional company was busy placing fliers on cars in the parking lot, advertising a pair of satellite camps next week at Greenhill School in Addison, Texas — one featuring University of Texas coach Charlie Strong and the other co-hosted by Iowa State coach Matt Campbell and (you guessed it) Harbaugh, according to The Dallas Morning News.
The flyers even found Houston head coach Tom Herman’s truck, according to a photo assistant Craig Naivar posted on his Twitter account. It appears Naivar collected a number of the flyers from cars around the lot before potential recruits found them on their windshields:
Stay tuned for the next episode of satellite camp wars, when Harbaugh advertises on a flashing billboard outside Nick Saban’s house, much like Kenny Rogers’ chicken shack.
