Jim Harbaugh has seen his Michigan program embroiled in an ongoing NCAA investigation this fall regarding allegations of illicit sign-stealing. That investigation follows closely on the heels of a separate investigation into alleged violations during the COVID dead period.

Now, Harbaugh has reportedly had a significant contract offer rescinded by the university in the wake of the sign-stealing saga. According to Andrew Beaton and Rachel Bachman with The Wall Street Journal, Michigan has rescinded an offer that would have made Harbaugh the highest-paid coach in the B1G.

The report points to the move as a sign that the university could be hesitant about the long-term future of a relationship with Harbaugh leading the program.

A new contract for Harbaugh is something that has been mentioned in recent seasons after Michigan grabbed hold of the B1G. The Wolverines have won back-to-back games against Ohio State with 2 straight conference titles and trips to the College Football Playoff.

Unfortunately, this season has been rocked by the recent allegations of analyst Connor Stalions’ in-person scouting network and use of technology to steal signs. That NCAA investigation is ongoing, and it is unclear when the organization could have a decision on any potential punishment for the program.
