Michigan players decided to pay tribute to their suspended coach during their college football season opener.
Before the start of the season, Michigan issued a self-imposed three-game suspension for Jim Harbaugh after he was caught making false statements during an investigation into recruiting violations.

Yahoo Sports can confirm Harbaugh will be suspended for the first three games of the regular season for making what the NCAA deemed to be false statements amid an investigation into alleged recruiting violations that occurred during the COVID-19 pandemic dead period.
During their season opener against East Carolina, Michigan players paid tribute to their coach by lining up in a straight formation and holding up four fingers, which was Harbaugh’s playing number.
