Michigan Commits Minor Violations Under Jim Harbaugh

For the most part, the marriage of ex-Wolverine alum Jim Harbaugh and Michigan has gone swimmingly, as the two have been a match made in Heaven. Plenty of buzz has been permeating from Ann Arbor ever since he was announced as their new football coach in late-December. However there has been a slight bump in the road, as the school on Monday self-reported some minor violations under Harbaugh.

According to MLive.com, Harbaugh and the Wolverines committed four minor violations.

More from Nick Baumgardner of MLive.com:

The Michigan football program self-reported four Secondary/Level III NCAA violations from December to April, including a mishap surrounding the recruitment of expected incoming graduate transfer Wayne Lyons.
All four of the self-reported violations were obtained by MLive via a Freedom of Information request. All Level III violations are considered to be minor and unintentional, and none of Michigan’s self-reports resulted in the loss of eligibility by any student-athlete or coach.
In all instances, coaches/staffers were educated by compliance, and no further issues came as a result.

Harbaugh has been busy trying to rebuild and re-brand the Wolverine’s image, which took a hit under his predecessor Brady Hoke, who underachieved the last couple of years. Michigan is coming off a season in which they finished 5-7 and came in fifth place in the East Division of the Big Ten.
