On Thursday, shortly after Michigan head coach, Jim Harbaugh announced that he is most likely staying with the program. A report surfaced from Nicole Auerbach of The Athletic that the program will receive a Notice of Allegations from the NCAA on Friday.

Sources revealed that they are minor infractions, but the investigation will center on the program’s response to the notice.

The school believes that the violations include analysts coaching players on the field and involving exchanging text messages.

According to the sources with knowledge of the investigation, the school self-reported these violations, and it is not certain what the NCAA violations would be.

Harbaugh, who has a 74-25 record at Michigan, with two Ten Championships and two College Football Playoff appearances over the past two years, has been rumored to garner interest from the Denver Broncos and Carolina Panthers recently but seemed to quell those rumors in a press conference on Thursday.

Time will tell what the NCAA sees in its investigation into the Michigan program and what it finds, and if it would sway the 58-year-old Harbaugh to jump back into the NFL after his last two seasons lifted his stock to be one of the hottest coaches available.
