“Jim Harbaugh is extremely excited about coming here,” said Rich Miano, the former University of Hawaii football assistant coach who runs Gridiron Performance Academy, the facilitator of the camps, along with strength and quickness coach Chad Ikei. “He’s spreading the Michigan brand to Polynesia — Samoa, Australia and Hawaii.”
Another former Hawaii assistant, Tony Tuioti, was a catalyst in Harbaugh’s decision to come to Hawaii, according to Miano. Tuioti is the director of player personnel for the Wolverines.
