It’s not often that you hear of a school reporting itself for violating NCAA doctrine. But such is the case for Michigan.
Multiple sources confirmed Monday that UM self-reported four violations made between December and April. According to Nick Baumgardner of MLive.com, all “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.”
Two violations involved new coach Jim Harbaugh, although his involvement is not expected to hurt the progress he has made since arriving in Ann Arbor following his departure from the San Francisco 49ers.
The other two violations involved correspondence with recruited student athletes, including an incident in March involving assistant coach Mike Zordich and incoming transfer student-ahtlete Wayne Lyons.
Baumgardner also reported that: “In all instances, coaches/staffers were educated by compliance, and no further issues came as a result.”
