Michigan wants to go to Europe on spring break for the second straight year in 2018.

Wolverines coach Jim Harbaugh told reporters Saturday that the team has voted to go to Paris; Normandy, France; and London.

“We took a straw poll,” Harbaugh said. “Right now, we’re looking into going to Paris, then Normandy and then London – we’d finish up in London.”

In April, Michigan went to Rome to both sightsee and practice.

Michigan’s Rome trip cost an estimated $750,000-$800,000 and was funded by a private donation and would be so again if another trip is taken next year.

Harbaugh also said Saturday that he plans to make official invites to former President Barack Obama and former first lady Michelle Obama about serving as honorary game captains this upcoming season.
