Obamas to be Honorary Football Coaches at U. Michigan

Obamas to be Honorary Football Coaches at U. Michigan

“The Obamas would be the biggest get for the university so far.”

Aren’t the Obamas lucky? They can visit any college they want and no one protests or causes trouble.

The Hill reports:

Obamas invited to be honorary football coach at University of Michigan

Former President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle Obama could have new gigs as football coaches at the University of Michigan — if they accept.

Wolverines coach Jim Harbaugh announced Saturday that he has extended invitations to the Obamas to serve as honorary football captains in 2017. Last year, other celebrities such as New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady and basketball legend Michael Jordan served as honorary coaches.

The Obamas would be the biggest get for the university so far.

“We’re making those asks, those official asks,” Harbaugh said on Saturday. “Yeah, we’re in the process of making an official ask.”

Harbaugh was in Washington, D.C. last week for a congressional hearing, during which time he had a chance to meet with the Obamas and extend the invitation.

The former coach of the San Francisco 49ers has a long relationship with the Obamas. He worked with Michelle Obama on the Reach Higher education initiative, and has met the former president and first lady many times over the years.

I knew Mike couldn’t stay away from foootball

so, Moochelle is going to be the wide-end coach, and Barry the Dimwitted will coach the loose receivers…

great move, coach, jinxing your team like that, or did you realize you likely needed an excuse for a lousy season?

Hillaryious. That limp-wristed little pussy would get snapped in half if he stepped onto a football field. Mooch, on the other hand, could probably have an NFL career as a defensive end.

Why not? Just something else they’re not qualified to do.
