The Big Ten conference is banning Michigan Wolverines Head Coach Jim Harbaugh from the sidelines until the end of the regular season. He’ll be allowed to coach the Wolverines during the week.
The Big Ten announced that 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.”
This stems from Michigan Wolverines staff member Connor Stalions’ alleged off-campus scouting and sign-stealing.
Stalions resigned on November 3 after being initially suspended with pay during the NCAA investigation.
In less than 24 hours, No. 3 ranked Michigan will face No. 10 Penn State on Saturday. This is a big matchup for the undefeated Wolverines.
After visiting Penn State, the Wolverines will face the Maryland Terrapins on the road. They close out the regular season against will their archrivals the Ohio State Buckeyes in a game that will carry significant implications on the top 25 rankings and the National Championship picture.
