Jim Harbaugh on threatening texts: "It's a serious matter."

Michigan police are looking into the threatening texts directed towards Jim Harbaugh that were purportedly sent by a former Wolverines player. "While there has been no crime committed at this stage, we will continue to assess the situation," Michigan deputy police chief Melissa Overton said in a statement Thursday.

Meanwhile, Harbaugh appeared at a coaching clinic in Detroit on Thursday night and addressed the matter publicly for the first time. He told the Detroit News:

“It’s a serious matter. I’m confident our administration and university officials will take the proper steps and are taking the proper steps.”

Harbaugh was asked if he felt threatened by the tweets.

“That’s all I’m going to say about it,” he said.

Michigan AD Warde Manuel expressed concern for the situation on Wednesday.
