According to a report late last night, Michigan players may have improperly sold team-issued shoes like the recently suspended players at North Carolina.
From Michigan spokesman Dave Ablauf tonight:— Nick Baumgardner (@nickbaumgardner) August 11, 2018
“We are aware of the report at North Carolina. Our compliance office is looking into this matter and will determine if anything needs to be reported to the NCAA.”
According to the statement from Michigan spokesman Dave Ablauf, the compliance team will be looking into the potential violation(s).
North Carolina recently suspended 13 players on its football team between one and four games for selling team-issued shoes to a third-party retailer.
The retailer involved in those transactions told UNC that they had also bought team-issued shoes from players at Michigan, Marquette, and the University of California. UNC subsequently informed officials at those schools about the potential rules violations.
This is a developing story.
