In late January, money that had been intended for Michigan football coach Jim Harbaugh began showing up in the bank accounts of other Michigan athletics department employees.
Just less than $1,000 here. Between $2,000 and $4,500 there. More than 30 five-figure amounts, and one that reached six figures.
They all resulted from Harbaugh’s late-November pledge that incentive bonuses he would be owed for the football team’s success during the 2021 season would be redirected to members of the department who had taken pandemic-related pay cuts during an 11-month stretch of 2020 and 2021 and had remained on the payroll.
Altogether, 210 employees received a combined total of just over $1.5 million, according to information USA TODAY Sports obtained from the university under an open-records request.
All other sports including pro, high school and more!
