Jim Harbaugh has spent half of the regular season serving suspensions. Despite that, he might not be done.
Harbaugh served a self-imposed three-game suspension to begin the season. That suspension stemmed from an NCAA investigation over an alleged recruiting violation. Then just last week, the Big Ten suspended Harbaugh for the final three games of the regular season over Michigan’s sign-stealing scandal. Harbaugh did not coach in Michigan’s wins over Penn State and Maryland.
So far, Harbaugh has been suspended for five games this season and is set to miss a sixth game (against Ohio State).
On Fox’s “Big Noon Kickoff” show on Saturday, reporter Bruce Feldman said that if Harbaugh remains Michigan’s head coach next season, he could be suspended for a bulk of the campaign.
“It would not be surprising if Jim Harbaugh could be suspended for the bulk of the 2024 season,” Feldman reported.
