Harbaugh Believes in Glasgow, No Secrets

Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh addressed the situation with senior center Graham Glasgow stating his future with the Wolverines will be decided based on how he handles legal requirements off the field.

ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- Senior center Graham Glasgow participated in Michigan’s spring game Saturday, even representing Team Blue as one of the captains for the pregame coin toss.

Jim Harbaugh and the Wolverines are hoping Glasgow can be a leader and major contributor up front in 2015, assuming the Illinois native takes care of his responsibilities off the field.

Glasgow was suspended for the first game of 2014 following his arrest for driving while impaired last off-season, set to be on probation until July of 2015 and open to random alcohol testing.

This spring, Glasgow failed one of those random tests and was suspended indefinitely from spring practice. Glasgow’s probation has been extended six months along with submitting to alcohol testing at a higher volume.

Following his return to the team and the field, Harbaugh was asked whether or not Glasgow would face further punishment inside Schembechler Hall.

“The legal system has got as much hanging over his head as anybody could possibly put it,” Harbaugh said. “There’s nothing more that I could or the football program or the University could have on Graham right now than what they have.

“You’re talking about somebody who’s taking a breathalyzer in the morning, one at night and he’s got to be clean -- 100-percent clean -- not a drop of alcohol.”

Starting 24 games in his career at Michigan thus far, Glasgow represents a great deal of experience for the Wolverines’ offensive line.

Whether or not Glasgow will be on the field for Michigan this fall is pretty simple to diagnose according to Harbaugh.

“He’ll either do it or he won’t,” Harbaugh said. “And I believe in him; I believe he will. But we will all know, there will be no secrets on that.

“Whether he does it or whether he doesn’t, it’ll all be for public consumption.”
