Jim Harbaugh's Staff Reports Secondary Violations at Michigan
Many people said that Jim Harbaugh's return to Michigan would mean the Wolverines' return to prominence. Well, it looks like Harbaugh has tried to do a little too much to fulfill those expectations.
Four violations, all secondary in nature, were reported to the NCAA by the Michigan football team. According to The Detroit Free Press, Harbaugh and his coaches wrongfully donated items to a high school scholarship fundraiser, openly talked about a student-athlete who had yet to sign his letter of intent with the school, gave web-links involving recruiting tools to a recruit on social media, and brought a recruit to a premium-seating area at a hockey game.
Although the NCAA often brushes off these type of violations, schools who do not report them can eventually get themselves in further trouble. Anyone wishing to read up on the secondary violations, follow this link to the NCAA official secondary violation webpage.
