If Michigan football head coach Jim Harbaugh is suspended by the NCAA that punishment could follow him to the NFL according to reports.
There have been tons of rumors about Michigan football head coach Jim Harbaugh possibly leaving the program to coach in the NFL due to all the issues with the NFL.
Bruce Feldman actually predicted that Harbaugh will be coaching in the NFL next season, even though as we are learning, the allegations into Michigan football aren’t what they are being made out to be.
The investigation is starting to look pretty biased and there’s a lot of information that hasn’t come out yet. There’s probably going to be more bad reporting for Michigan football — because the PR campaign is in full tilt.
The NFL reporters contributed to the negative Harbaugh press on Sunday reporting that if Harbaugh goes get punished by the NCAA that could follow him to the NFL.
The article cited Jim Tressel as a precedent. He worked for the Colts after resigning from Ohio State and served a suspension relating to the Tattoo scandal.
Terrell Pryor and Tressel both served five-game suspensions before taking part in league competition. The Colts suspended Tressel on their own. Here’s part of what was written by Ian Rapoport and Tom Pelissero.
"“Back in 2011, Ohio State quarterback Terrell Pryor was facing a five-game suspension for trading memorabilia for cash and tattoos when he declared for the NFL supplemental draft. Tressel — who also was suspended five games by Ohio State, but ultimately resigned as Buckeyes coach amidst the scandal — had taken a game-day consultant job with the Colts, and the NFL’s decision on Pryor raised questions. As is often the case with coaches, the league allowed the team to handle the case, and the Colts announced Tressel wouldn’t be with the club until Week 7 of the 2011 season.”"
Maybe this will keep NFL teams from being interested in Harbaugh. That would be a positive to me because I want Harbaugh to be Michigan football’s head coach as long as possible.
