Big Ten Suspends Jim Harbaugh Amid Investigation, Banned From Sideline on Game Days

The Big Ten has suspended Michigan head coach Jim Harbaugh for the rest of the regular season as part of the ongoing sign-stealing probe, the conference confirmed Friday in a statement. The Big Ten stated this is “not a sanction of Coach Harbaugh,” as he will be able to remain with the team throughout the week but is banned from the team sideline on game days as the investigation plays out. The punishment is in response to ex-Michigan staffer Connor Stalions allegedly operating an in-person scouting operation where he sent friends to games to record the sideline play signals of future Wolverine competitors. Should the punishment hold, Harbaugh will miss this weekend’s showdown at Penn State, at Maryland, and the season finale game against Ohio State in Ann Arbor. If Michigan qualifies, Harbaugh would be eligible to return for both the Big Ten title game on Dec. 2 and the College Football Playoff.

After nearly three months away from the stage, Swift resumed her sold-out Eras Tour in Buenos Aires on Thursday, playing the first of three shows at the River Plate Stadium before bringing the South American leg of her tour to Rio de Janeiro and São Paolo.
