U-M set to announce self-imposed sanctions for football

The NCAA gave the Michigan 90 days to respond to its notice of allegations against its football program sent out in late February and, with that time rapidly running out, new athletic director David Brandon said the school will send in its response next Monday (May 24), outlining its plan for self-imposed sanctions.

"We want there to be total transparency," Brandon told Monday at the Big Ten spring meetings of coaches and ADs. "Within 24 hours after the material has been delivered to the [Committee on Infractions], we're going to make them available to the general public. You'll have the responses, you'll have the self-imposed penalties, sanctions, that we believe are appropriate."

The NCAA alleged that the U-M program exceeded limits on practice time, as well as stipulations on coaches involved in workouts. 

Tuesday's public revelation of the school's answer to those allegations will just be the next step in the process, but isn't necessarily the end of the road for U-M. Officials will have to appear in front of the Committee on Infractions in August, where further sanctions could be laid down.
