Jim Harbaugh, the head football coach of the Michigan Wolverines, is expected to play against No. 17 Iowa in the Big Ten championship game after serving a three-game suspension.

 

Allegations of a prohibited sign-stealing operation headed by Connor Stallions, a former employee, led to the suspension.

 

59-year-old Harbaugh and his family witnessed the victory over Ohio State on Saturday, and he called safety Rod Moore’s game-winning interception of Kyle McCord’s pass in the closing seconds “one of the happiest moments of my life.”

 

Under Harbaugh’s most recent suspension, which had only been in effect on game days, second-ranked Michigan has won all three of its games.

 

He said to ESPN on Sunday, “My emotions and my focus have been with the team the entire time.” “It has been amazing.”season, exactly where we wanted to be and where we had worked so hard to achieve. Now it’s forward motion. Many of our objectives have been met, but not all of them yet. In addition, We are concentrating on winning the conference championship because that is the next step. It feels good to be back, but in reality, I was never gone.

 

Additionally, Harbaugh reaffirmed that he would be willing to accept a lower salary in exchange for compensating athletes such as college football players.

 

“I’m using my voice to demand compensation for the players, and I’d take less money in exchange for a share.” Speaking on Sunday, Harbaugh mentioned the sacrifices made by athletes. During the third quarter of the Wolverines’ victory over Ohio State, offensive lineman Zak Zinter broke his leg. “I hope other coaches would use their voice to express the same thing,” Harbaugh said.

 

Who could be against the players getting paid for their labour, or at the very least the minimum wage? Who could really argue against that, whether or not there is an injury? stated Harbaugh, whose base pay for this year is $7.63 million.with bonuses of up to $3 million possible.
