The NCAA banned satellite camps over the weekend, which opened up the June schedule of Michigan head coach Jim Harbaugh. He will not just be sitting on his hands, however.

Harbaugh will deliver the commencement address at Paramus Catholic High School in New Jersey on June 9, according to a report from NorthJersey.com.

If that school name sounds familiar, it is. Its football program produced Jabrill Peppers and Rashan Gary and has a handful of more high-profile recruits coming out in the next couple of years. Michigan linebackers coach Chris Partridge was also formerly the school's head football coach.

Commencement is an academic ceremony. It's not connected to athletics," school president Jim Vail told the website. "But I have gotten to know Coach Harbaugh pretty well. I'm not a football guy, but I know a great educator when I see one, and he always impressed me as a great educator and great leader.

"He's a very dynamic individual. He does many things that would make him a great role model for our students."

Harbaugh had previously been scheduled to attend the Sound Mind Sound Body camp in Detroit on that date, but the satellite ban now prohibits college coaches from attending.
