Michigan’s Jim Harbaugh to serve out suspension; Big Ten to close investigation into sign-stealing

Finebaum will not recognize Michigan as champs
Paul Finebaum joins The Dan Patrick show to explain how the Michigan sign-stealing scandal could have been avoided and discuss the upcoming hearing regarding Jim Harbaugh and the Big Ten conference.

Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh will accept a three-game suspension from the Big Ten and the conference will end its investigation into a sign-stealing scheme as part of an agreement to resolve the school’s lawsuit against the league, Michigan said Thursday.

Harbaugh was suspended last Friday by the Big Ten and Michigan hours later asked a court for an injunction and temporary restraining order. The restraining order was not ruled upon and Harbaugh did not coach the team against Penn State on Saturday.

The two sides were expected in court Friday in Michigan, but instead Harbaugh will serve out the remainder of the suspension, missing games against Maryland on Saturday and Ohio State on Nov. 25.
