Michigan football coach Jim Harbaugh won't admit he lied to NCAA investigators

Negotiations between the NCAA and the University of Michigan have hit a snag because ,

Michigan football coach Jim Harbaugh will not admit he lied to investigators.

The Free Press has confirmed a Yahoo! Sports report stating that Harbaugh does not believe he knowingly misled the NCAA,

 a Level I violation, and will not sign anything admitting such.

People with knowledge of the situation, granted anonymity because they are not at liberty to publicly discuss the negotiations,

told the Free Press that things are at a standoff right now and that it's not clear what will happen next.

The Yahoo report said that Harbaugh did admit to the Level II violations,

Earlier this week, university president Santa Ono announced that Harbaugh, 59,

would be returning to Michigan for his ninth season as head coach, which Harbaugh later confirmed via social media.
