Michigan football sign-stealing scandal: News updates as Big Ten suspends Jim Harbaugh amid investigation

The Big Ten has suspended Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh from coaching in games for the remainder of the 2023 regular season. The Big Ten concluded that Michigan violated the league’s sportsmanship policy, which allows the conference to take action without the lengthy protocols that govern an NCAA investigation. Harbaugh is allowed to attend team practices and other activities outside of football game days.

“The Big Ten Conference announced today that the University of Michigan has been found in violation of the Big Ten Sportsmanship Policy for conducting an impermissible, in-person scouting operation over multiple years, resulting in an unfair competitive advantage that compromised the integrity of competition.” The conference released a statement.

The subject of the Big Ten’s investigation is former employee Connor Stalions, who is accused of purchasing tickets for over 30 games, many of which are in the Big Ten, and stealing signs using “illegal technology.” Stalions resigned from Michigan’s staff on Nov. 3 after previously being suspended with pay pending the outcome of the NCAA’s investigation. Harbaugh, who has already been entangled with the NCAA, has denied knowledge of the operation.

Michigan legal action not heard before Penn State kickoff

There will be no ruling on the University of Michigan and coach Jim Harbaugh’s request for a temporary restraining order halting the three-game suspension handed down by the Big Ten on Friday, according to 247Sports. That means Harbaugh, who traveled with the Wolverines to State College, Pennsylvania, will not be able to coach No. 3 Michigan in a key Big Ten East clash against No. 10 Penn State.

Michigan offensive coordinator Sherrone Moore will step in as acting coach just as he did earlier this season when Harbaugh served a three-game suspension to start the 2023 campaign.
