The University of Michigan football program had planned to hold a camp in Australia this summer. As of Monday, this plan is now dead, per ProKick Australia.
The camp was meant to give Australian football players a means to learn how to play the game under rules used in the United States. Every Michigan positions coach was expected to be present this June to help teach the players.
The event would also allow Michigan coaches to get a first-hand look at possible Australian prospects.
Apparently, the camp broke at least one NCAA rule, though the particular rule that was broken has not been specified.
The camp was planned in the midst of the NCAA’s fall out over the satellite camps, a practice that was banned by the Division 1 council and later overturned by the NCAA. Michigan head coach Jim Harbaugh had defied the NCAA by appearing at a number of practices all over the nation, an action previously forbidden by both the ACC and SEC.
