University of Hawaii first-year head coach Nick Rolovich and staff will join Jim Harbaugh and the University of Michigan coaching staff to co-host a football camp at Saint Louis School on June 26.

With last month’s NCAA ban on satellite camps lifted, UH agreed to co-host on this portion of Harbaugh’s “Summer Swarm” campaign of 30 satellite camps in 30 days. Both coaching staffs will put high school players through workouts and drills to observe their talent.

All camp registration and other administrative duties will be organized by Rich Miano, director of GPA Football, and Chad Ikei, who runs Ikei Sports Hawaii.

Miano explained what it means to have a successful program like Michigan come to Hawaii to observe the talent in the islands.

“I think when you talk about Jim Harbaugh and the Michigan coaching staff, they are making a statement that they want to be big in Polynesia. They want to be big in Hawaii. They want to make sure their brand is throughout the islands,” said Miano.

Miano also talked about how this camp will be beneficial to everyone involved from the institutions and players participating.

“At the same time the University of Hawaii has the chance to not only coach with those guys, but they’re also saying hey we are the big dogs in Hawaii and we want to be represented at this clinic as well,” said Miano. “Whenever you put together these types of clinics or camps, it’s a benefit to all. It showcases college football at the highest level.”

The Rainbow Warriors are also planning more football camps of their own during June on the UH campus.

The ‘Bows and Wolverines will meet at “The Big House” on Sept. 3 in Ann Arbor, Mich.
