Michigan suspended football analyst amid NCAA investigation over alleged sign stealing

Connor Stalions, a member of the Michigan football staff, has been suspended with pay, one day after the NCAA launched an investigation into sign-stealing allegations, athletic director Warde Manuel announced Friday.

According to his LinkedIn profile, Stalions is an off-field analyst and has been with the football program since May 2022. 

As of Friday afternoon, Stalions’ LinkedIn appears to have been taken down.

According to a Yahoo Sports report, Michigan allegedly sent people to games of teams they are scheduled to play to gather information on signs used to call plays on offense and defense.

However, the association does have rules against in-person advanced scouting of opponents. 

“Off-campus, in-person scouting of future opponents (in the same season) is prohibited,”  NCAA Bylaw 11.6.1 states.
