It has been several months since we heard about the NCAA’s investigation into alleged hiring violations by Michigan head coach Jim Harbaugh.
Today we finally got an update thanks to some reports from Ross Dellenger at Yahoo Sportsnoting that Harbaugh is negotiating with the NCAA over a prospective four-game suspension early in the 2023 season.
“Michigan head coach Jim Harbaugh and the NCAA are working on a negotiated settlement that will likely see him suspended for four games this season for being fined for allegedly making false statements he originally made to investigators, sources tell Yahoo Sports.”
Harbaugh’s attorney, Tom Mars has published an opinion responded to Dellenger’s reporting and said they were cooperating with NCAA staff on an enforcement matter.
The Wolverines first four games of the year are up against ECU, UNLV, Bowling Green and Rutgers, all at home.
Michigan is currently in 4th place in the national recruiting ranking 2024.
