University Police Investigating Threats Against Jim Harbaugh

Jim Harbaugh addresses a group of reporters.

Earlier this morning, reports emerged regarding a series of disturbing tweets from a former Michigan linebacker, Elysee Mbem-Bosse. The junior linebacker called out head coach Jim Harbaugh, and revealed the team suspended him.

According to a report from MLive, University of Michigan police are investigating threats made against Jim Harbaugh. It's unclear if the university is directly investigating Mbem-Bosse, as his Twitter account could have been hacked by someone else.

Michigan revealed to MLive that university police are looking into the matter.

The University of Michigan Police Department launched an investigation Monday night into social media threats apparently aimed at the Michigan football coach, Melissa Overton, deputy chief and department spokeswoman confirmed to MLive on Tuesday.

Overton also revealed the no one has been charged or arrested as a result of the investigation.

Mbem-Bosse is no longer listed on Michigan’s football roster, although it's not known when he was removed from the team. The former linebacker allegedly revealed he had been suspended after a family visit.

We’ll update this post if anything more comes out about the investigation. Stay tuned.
