A couple days ago, former Michigan LB Elysee Mbem-Bosse allegedly posted a series of threatening tweets on his Twitter account while mentioning Wolverines coach Jim Harbaugh.
Mbem-Bosse has been off the team since last November but is believed to still be enrolled at Michigan. One of the tweets believed to be posted by the former linebacker said he “was suspended for going to take care of my family.”
On Thursday night, Harbaugh — along with other assistant coaches — attended the Horatio Williams Coaching Clinic and talked to The Detroit News about the situation with Mbem-Bosse.
“It’s a serious matter,” Harbaugh said. “I’m confident our administration and university officials will take the proper steps and are taking the proper steps.”
Was he threatened by the tweets?
“That’s all I’m going to say about it,” Harbaugh said.
In a statement on Thursday, Melissa Overton, the deputy chief of police for the University of Michigan police department, said, “While there has been no crime committed at this stage, we will continue to assess the situation.”
