Michigan receives NCAA notice of allegations for recruiting violations that led to Jim Harbaugh suspension


Michigan football has received a notice of allegations from the NCAA related to the investigation into illicit recruiting and coaching during the COVID-19 dead period, a school spokesperson confirmed to ESPN. The program faces four Level II violations, along with a Level I allegation against coach Jim Harbaugh for misleading investigators. Michigan first received a draft of the NCAA notice in January, and the program agreed to several Level II allegations, including texting during the dead period, analysts performing on-field coaching and coaches watching workouts via Zoom during the COVID-19 shutdown. The university, however, continues to push back on the Level I violation that Harbaugh lied to investigators regarding the incidents.
