Jim Harbaugh suspension: Big Ten details 'uncontroverted' evidence that Connor Stalions 'coordinated a scheme'
Jim Harbaugh has received his suspension from the Big Ten, the conference announced on Friday in a detailed letter released following the investigation into the illegal on-site sign-stealing scandal.
The Big Ten announced that Jim Harbaugh will not be allowed on the sideline on game days for the remaining of the 2023 regular-season, effective immediately. Harbaugh can be with the team during the week.
In its notice of disciplinary action, the Big Ten told Michigan it was informed by the NCAA of “uncontroverted” evidence that Connor Stalions “coordinated a scheme by which individuals were directed to attend games of future opponents for scouting purposes.”

“As described below, the existence of the impermissible scheme is proven. While other investigatory bodies continue to develop additional evidence of the scope, extent and individual knowledge of the scheme that may advise additional or enhanced penalties in the future, taking immediate action is appropriate and necessary under the Conference’s Sportsmanship Policy.”
