Those who have followed Jim Harbaugh know he thinks outside the box.
When he took over as the head coach of Michigan, he ran satellite camps in SEC country that caused an NCAA rule change.
One of his rules only allows players who win their drills to run extra sprints at the end of practice. He utilizes running as an incentive rather than a punishment.
A former player explained this nuance as, “Only the guys that win get a chance to get better.“
Every game day, Harbaugh goes out and warms up with the quarterbacks as if he is preparing to lead the maize and blue to victory.
Therefore, it shouldn’t surprise anybody when news broke of the trailblazing move Harbaugh made.
The Wolverines became the first Power-5 program in college football history to hire a woman to its coaching staff. Milan Bolden-Morris will serve as a Graduate Assistant (GA) for Michigan in 2022.
Bolden-Morris, a former Divison-1 basketball player, spent three seasons at Boston College and one at Georgetown.
Her hiring was announced by the football program Tuesday. She will officially start on June 1st working with the quarterbacks.
“I have always believed in providing opportunities for individuals who are passionate about football,” Harbaugh said in a statement.
“Mimi is someone who has shown that drive to become a football coach. We had some great conversations, and I came away extremely impressed with her desire and ideas for coaching and for making us better as a team.“
Alongside bringing a fresh viewpoint, she’ll also have family support. Her brother, Mike Morris, was a pivotal contributor to the Wolverines last season and returns to the roster in 2022.
“The opportunity to be the first female GA in the Power 5, especially the Big Ten, is an absolute honor. It speaks volumes to Coach Harbaugh’s efforts to create an environment of inclusion. These opportunities have been an anomaly for a Black woman until recently.” Bolden Morris said in a statement.
The Wolverines are amidst spring ball and will cap it off with a scrimmage on April 2nd.
