Jim Harbaugh not expecting any suspensions due to shoe selling
Jim Harbaugh is not expecting Michigan to join North Carolina in suspending players due to shoe violations.
The Wolverines investigated its football players to see whether any of them had violated team rules by selling shoes they were given by Jordan brand as part of school endorsement.
On Monday, Harbaugh said that they took a shoe inventory and that all shoes were accounted for. Because of that, he’s not expecting any suspensions.
Harbaugh says he doesn’t anticipate anyone missing time for selling shoes. All current players had to go through a shoe inventory, all shoes were present he says.

Michigan was one of three schools contacted by North Carolina about potential violations. A shoe reseller told UNC that they had bought shoes from Michigan, Marquette, and Cal, leading the Tar Heels to warn those schools.
North Carolina last week announced the suspension of 13 players for selling their school-supplied gear.
