Parents of LB standout Obi Ezeh do not believe the Michigan coaching staff is violating any rules.

Nkechy Obi told Fox 17 News: “When I read the report, the one thing I said to myself is what’s wrong in kids working hard, why is it being twisted now, that they’re breaking the rule? I don’t think the coaches are breaking any rules and I don’t think my son would go along with it.”

Their son concurs and believes these allegations will only strengthen the team. "We were really tight coming out of training camp," Ezeh said. "I think things like this kind of help us to grow stronger."
