The Wolverines' last game of the regular season will not feature coach Jim Harbaugh on the sidelines after he was suspended on Nov. 10 pending a sign-stealing investigation. 

Under the suspension by the Big Ten, Harbaugh is not allowed to attend the last three games of the season but can attend practices and other sporting activities. The Michigan coach accepted the suspension

In the meantime, offensive coordinator Sherrone Moore was slated to lead the Wolverines in the last three games -- two of the games they've been successful in winning against Penn State and Maryland.

The team's victory against Maryland earned its 1,000th win.  

Harbaugh hired Moore away from Central Michigan in 2018, and he coached tight ends for three seasons before leading the offensive line and adding play-calling duties, becoming a rising star in the coaching ranks.

Moore, who started his coaching career in 2009 as a graduate assistant at Louisville, is hoping to help the Wolverines block out distractions on the field in pursuit of a third straight Big Ten championship and their first national title since 1997.
