Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh is planning to invite former President Barack Obama and his wife Michelle as honorary captains at a U-M game this fall.

"We're making those asks," Harbaugh said. "Official asks. Yes we're in the process of making an official ask. There'd been, 'hey we'd like you to do it.' Now the official ask."

Harbaugh had a number of famous honorary captains last year, including Michael Jordan, Tom Brady and Hank Aaron.

He's in a position to ask Obama because of their previous relationship.
