Michigan Football reveals who will replace Jim Harbaugh vs. Penn State
With just over two hours remaining until kickoff in the highly anticipated game between No. 3 Michigan and No. 9 Penn State at Happy Valley, the status of Michigan head coach Jim Harbaugh remains uncertain. Harbaugh, who faced a suspension from the Big Ten on Friday, has yet to receive confirmation on whether he will be allowed to coach the Wolverines in this crucial matchup.
As the Michigan buses arrived at Beaver Stadium, reports indicate that Harbaugh was not among those on the bus. However, he is reportedly in a position where he can be transported to the stadium swiftly if a stay is granted by the judge.
Plan B for Michigan
In the event that Harbaugh is unable to coach, Michigan Football has announced a contingency plan. According to Adam Rittenberg of ESPN, Wolverines offensive coordinator Sherrone Moore is set to take the helm in Harbaugh's stead for this crucial matchup against Penn State. Moore's potential step into the lead coaching role adds another layer of intrigue to this top-ten showdown.
