Michigan has received an official notice of violations related to the tenure of former head coach Jim Harbaugh.

Before anyone reading gets too far ahead of themselves, Tuesday’s notice from the NCAA is related to violations that occurred during 2020. The sign-stealing investigation centered around the program and analyst Connor Stalions is still forthcoming.

According to the NCAA, Michigan and 5 current or former football coaches reached an agreement on recruiting violations and coaching activities by noncoaching staff members. One former coach was not involved in the agreement, and that case is being separated and will be handled on an individual basis.

The violations include impermissible in-person recruiting contacts during a dead period, impermissible tryouts and the program exceeding the number of allowed countable coaches when non-coaching staff members engaged in on- and off-field coaching activities.

Michigan also agreed that the underlying violations demonstrated a violation of a head coach responsibility by Harbaugh. The Wolverines also agreed they failed to deter and detect impermissible recruiting contacts and did not ensure the program adhered to rules for noncoaching staff members.

Agreed-upon penalties for the 5 coaches involved in the agreement include a one-year show-cause. Michigan also agreed to 3 years of probation, a fine and recruiting restrictions.

According to SI’s Pat Forde, Harbaugh was the coach who did not take part in the negotiated resolution. His role will be considered by the Committee on Infractions separately.

With Harbaugh leaving the Wolverines to return to the NFL, it’s likely he will never return to college as a head coach. That could play a role in why he did not take part in the negotiated resolution.
