When Michigan takes the field Saturday for its showdown in the Fiesta Bowl against TCU, it’ll be doing so with a trailblazer on its sideline.

Milan “Mimi” Bolden-Morris — a first-year offensive graduate assistant — is reportedly the first female GA in Big Ten history and is believed to be only the second ever at a Power Five school after Carol White broke the barrier with Georgia Tech in the 1980s.

Before coming to Ann Arbor, Bolden-Morris played basketball for three seasons at Boston College and two seasons at Georgetown, where she earned a Bachelor’s degree in Communication and a Master’s degree in Sports Industry Management, respectively. She’s working on another Master’s in Public Policy at Michigan.

Per her LinkedIn, she also interned for a summer at Rosenhaus Sports Representation.

“Whatever it is you want or are pursuing, don’t give up on it,” Bolden-Morris told the UM athletics website in August. “It may not seem like an opportunity is there, but if you pursue it with all your heart and continue to be a good person in the process, good things will happen.”

Bolden-Morris gets to be part of the Michigan family with her actual family, too: Her brother, Mike Morris, is a senior linebacker for the Wolverines.
