Jim Harbaugh addressed the media Monday as Michigan prepares to come off a bye week and resume the season in Week 10. The head coach addressed a number of key topics related to rumors swirling around the Michigan program.

Harbaugh was specifically asked about a rescinded contract offer, something that was reported by The Wall Street Journal on Sunday. According to that report, Michigan had rescinded an offer that would have made Harbaugh the highest-paid coach in the B1G. ESPN’s Adam Rittenberg later reported that a new contract was “on hold” and cited sources who said the head coach was instructed not to sign the new deal during the investigation.

According to Harbaugh, he wouldn’t classify reports of a rescinded contract as “accurate.” However, he also said the university has a policy about not discussing contracts until they’re done.

As for the ongoing NCAA investigation, Harbaugh said he has “a one-track mind” focused on his team to bother with the national speculation. He also cited a need to just let things play out while cooperating with the investigation, saying he was “forthright with my statement” on the ongoing matter.
