    Michigan’s Jim Harbaugh lambasts NCAA setup: ‘The status quo is unacceptable’

    Speaking publicly for the first time since being suspended for the first three games of Michigan’s season, coach Jim Harbaugh used his Monday news conference to call for changes to college football’s status quo. Here’s what you need to know:

    Harbaugh delivered a lengthy opening statement about the need to share TV revenue with players, an idea he endorsed a year ago at Big Ten Media Days.

    Harbaugh said his calls for change weren’t a reaction to his own experiences with the NCAA, which has been investigating Michigan for alleged recruiting violations that occurred during the COVID-19 dead period.

    As a result of that investigation, offensive coordinator Sherrone Moore, who also coaches Michigan’s offensive line, will serve a one-game suspension during Saturday’s season opener against East Carolina. An industry source briefed on the discussions confirmed Moore’s suspension was accepted by the NCAA as part of a negotiated resolution. Quarterbacks coach Kirk Campbell will call plays Saturday, Harbaugh said.

    Defensive coordinator Jesse Minter will call defensive plays while filling in for Harbaugh as acting head coach.
