Jim Harbaugh says he has not heard from Mel Tucker following Week 9
Jim Harbaugh is not happy with the turn of events following Michigan-Michigan State’s rivalry game and more so the response from Mel Tucker regarding the altercation.
On Monday, Harbaugh revealed that the Michigan State head coach has yet to reach out regarding the aftermath of the tunnel altercation with two Michigan players reportedly being “assaulted” by MSU players.
Mel Tucker has not reached out to apologize or discuss his players assaulting Gemon Green or Ja’Den McBurrows, per Jim Harbaugh.

Tucker did provide a statement on the altercation on Sunday night, adding that four of MSU’s players have been suspended: Tank Brown, Khary Crump, Angelo Grose and Zion Young.
But Harbaugh would like a formal apology or for Tucker to acknowledge and discuss the players that were involved on the Wolverines’ squad.
During his Monday press conference, Tucker did apologize to everyone involved with the incident but also said he has not contacted Harbaugh directly. We’ll see if that changes in the days ahead.

The Michigan and Michigan State football programs will be reeling from this incident for a while and it has not been determined what led up to the altercation in the tunnel.
It is being reported that one of the UM players involved, Gemon Green and his family, will press charges. There has been no word on if the other player involved will do the same.
