Michael Jordan's empire has expanded to college football ... because his "Jumpman" image is now front and center on the new University of Michigan football jerseys.
Michigan has a deal with Jordan Brand -- and has become the first major college football team to let MJ's line design their uniforms.
The final design -- revealed by UM tight end coach Jay Harbaugh (and brought to our attention by our friends at BSO) -- shows Jordan's basketball logo on the jersey and on the pants.
It's a pretty big move for Michigan ... considering their jerseys are iconic in the college sports landscape.
Question is ... will other schools follow suit? We're lookin' at you, North Carolina.
