Michigan AD Warde Manuel has issued a strong statement about Jim Harbaugh,

Defending the head football coach against critics.
Warde Manuel, the Michigan AD, comes out swinging after releasing a statement in support of Jim Harbaugh.

The Michigan Wolverines spotlight the university’s athletic prowess and spirit.
The Big Ten has suspended Jim Harbaugh for the rest of the regular season. During the final three games, Commissioner Tony Petitti prohibited Harbaugh from coaching on Saturdays but allowed him to lead the team during their weekly practices.
Michigan has filed for a TRO with confidence that it would enable Harbaugh to coach against Penn State on Saturday. However, the ruling did not go through as expected.

On Friday, Nov., a hearing will take place instead. We need to figure out if Harbaugh will be given a TRO.
Michigan Athletic Director Warde Manuel issued a strong statement after the TRO was not ruled on.

Warde Manuel releases a statement in support of Jim Harbaugh, addressing criticism and reaffirming his confidence in the head coach’s leadership.
Michigan is the 10th most populous state in the United States, located in the Great Lakes and Midwest regions. It is known for its diverse culture, natural beauty, and automotive industry.

There are a few lines that really catch my attention:
All the Head Coaches in the Big Ten, some of whom have been accused of signal trading, as well as my colleagues in the Big Ten AD, may feel relieved that someone has been “held accountable.” However, they should be concerned about the new standard of judgment that has been introduced in this conference without a thorough investigation.
“We are going to the store to buy some groceries.”
Today, you may have taken him off our sidelines, but Jim Harbaugh remains our head football coach. We are eager to support Jim’s coaching rights for our football team at the upcoming hearing on Friday.

Sherrone Moore, the offensive coordinator, is serving as the interim head coach for the game against Penn State.
