Michigan head football coach Jim Harbaugh really racked up quite a recruiting bill for the month of January as national signing day came and went.
USA Today Sports has the details:
Traveling alone or being accompanied by as many as three assistants at a time, Harbaugh racked up 18 jet-travel legs from Jan. 19 through Jan. 30. There were another five “dead” legs involving no passengers, and an assistant coach had one solo travel leg. There was only day during that period for which no private-jet trips were logged. Altogether, the total value came to nearly $136,000.
The good news for Harbaugh and Michigan is that they had the fifth best recruiting class for 2016, according to 247Sports.com. They certainly paid for it.
