It was a fairly boring signing day for Michigan football. There weren't any surprises and while the Michigan Wolverines added a four-star EDGE, it wasn't an unexpected commitment.

Still, an uneventful signing day can be a good thing. Four-star quarterback Jadyn Davis signed on the dotted line as did top-100 running back Jordan Marshall. That could be the Michigan football backfield in the years to come.

The Wolverines also killed it at the EDGE position, as well as on the offensive line, landing Andrew Sprague, a top-100 tackle, as well as other blue-chippers up front.

However, there were a couple of things that overshadowed signing day for the Michigan Wolverines and we'll cover both of those in our news roundup.

Chargers reportedly interested in Jim Harbaugh

According to a report from Jordan Schultz of the Bleacher Report, the Chargers are going to make a run at Michigan football head coach Jim Harbaugh.

The report does note that it's not clear if Jim Harbaugh is interested. I do think that Harbaugh would consider the right NFL job at the right time. However, I don't see that being Los Angeles. I'm not sure about ownership there and while there is a franchise quarterback, I have my doubts. Personally, I'm much more worried about the Las Vegas Raiders than the Chargers.

At the same time, Harbaugh is quirky enough that maybe he gets the kind of control he wants from an owner like Dean Spanos. Harbaugh is hard to predict, but I don't think he leaves the Michigan wolverines for the LA Chargers.

NCAA gives Michigan football notice of allegations

The NCAA clearly has an agenda when it comes to Jim Harbaugh. The NCAA leaked stuff about the investigation into the Michigan Wolverines before Big Ten Media Days and decided to send its notice of allegations on signing day despite sending a draft of allegations back on January 5th.

That's the way this organization works. It violates its own rules to publicly comment on the investigation and on a day when Michigan football signed a bunch of new recruits, the focus was on the NCAA for a cheeseburger and some other level-2 violations -- all the while turning a blind eye to the tampering and rampant pay-for-play being described as NIL.

Jim Harbaugh has already served a three-game suspension over the matter and if the NCAA wants to issue more discipline, Michigan should take it to court. Harbaugh has denied he was dishonest or misleading the NCAA which is what the Level 1 violation alleges anyway. If I was U-M, the NCAA needs to accept the three games Jim already served or it's time for the lawyers to get involved.

The process could get dragged out for years so my hope is that this doesn't hold up the Jim Harbaugh extension in any way and that Michigan football stands up to the corrupt and untrustworthy NCAA.
