Conversations between the NCAA and Michigan crater over Jim Harbaugh’s refusal to admit he lied
Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh remains in place. And he will face a formal NCAA investigation.
Yahoo Sports’ Dan Wetzel reports on talks between the NCAA and Michigan it fell this weekAfter Harbaugh refused to admit he lied to the NCAA when asked about low-level violations.
According to the report, Harbaugh has admitted to minor violations, but has refused to admit it was untrue during the investigation. He said he did not remember the events when he was first questioned, but insisted he never lied on purpose.
The false accusation raises the stakes, and Harbaugh faces a potential six-game suspension along with recruiting restrictions, according to NCAA rules.
The official process could take at least a year, allowing Harbaugh to coach the team in 2023 as part of his suspension. He could then go to the NFL in 2024 if it looks like he can lose his case against the NCAA.
Harbaugh interviewed with the Vikings last year and the Broncos this year. In both cases, he decided to stay in Michigan.
