Michigan & Coach Jim Harbaugh Accept Big Ten’s 3-Game Suspension
The University of Michigan Wolverines and coach Jim Harbaugh have agreed to the Big Ten’s three-game suspension of the coach.
This means that Harbaugh will not coach against Maryland and Ohio State.
Following this agreement, the Big Ten agreed to close its investigation of sign stealing by Michigan.
“This morning, the University, Coach Harbaugh, and the Big Ten resolved their pending litigation,” Michigan’s statement read. “The Conference agreed to close its investigation, and the University and Coach Harbaugh agreed to accept the three-game suspension. With the University’s support, Coach Harbaugh decided to accept this sanction to return the focus to our student-athletes and their performance on the field. The Conference has confirmed that it is unaware of any information suggesting Coach Harbaugh’s involvement in the allegations. The University continues to cooperate fully with the NCAA’s investigation.”

The conflict between Big Ten and Michigan began last Friday, when Big Ten commissioner Tony Petitti announced Harbaugh was being suspended for the final three games. Harbaugh has served one of his three-game suspensions, watching last week’s win against Penn State from a hotel room about 20 minutes away.
Michigan, who are 10-0, are currently ranked No. 3 in the college football playoff ranking.
