Jim Harbaugh’s postgame diatribe against Big Ten officials after his Michigan team lost at Ohio State on Saturday has left him lighter in the wallet.
The conference announced late Monday a public reprimand for Harbaugh, who was also fined $10,000.
The Wolverines’ mentor took issue with several aspects of how his team’s 30-27 overtime loss was officiated, including the spot on a crucial fourth down in overtime and a pair of pass interference calls (one that went against his team and one that was not called against Ohio State).
In a statement, the league said Harbaugh violated a rule requiring “civility toward all, and respect, particularly toward opponents and officials.”
According to the USA Today coaches’ salary database, Harbaugh is making over $9 million in total compensation this year.
