Jim Harbaugh spoke to the media on Monday night and all signs appear to be that no current player on Michigan’s roster has sold their team issued Jordan shoes.
This comes after reports of North Carolina having several within the program that sold their team issued shoes, which led to 13 players being suspended between two and four games.
“Our compliance has investigated that,” Harbaugh said. “There were a couple shoes that were reported to be out there, we’ve gone through everybody that’s currently on the roster and they’ve accounted for those pairs of shoes.”
Jim Harbaugh says he doesn’t currently expect any players to miss time for selling shoes. Confirms some size 14s were sold & some were attached to a No. 52, but said all shoes among current players were accounted for.— Zach Shaw (@_ZachShaw) August 14, 2018
Says he isn’t sure when investigation will be over, though.
The two former players with No. 52 were Mason Cole and Elyse Mbem-Bosse.
Harbaugh was asked if he thinks any players will miss games this season, but answered with a simple, “No.”
“Hopefully the guys on the roster that have college eligibility understand the consequences. I know they’ve been briefed on it,” Harbaugh said. “Our guys are pretty smart. And if they don’t, if someone does sell their shoes, it’s going to result in missed games.”
