Michigan Wolverines head football coach Jim Harbaugh commented Thursday on recent threatening tweets by former Michigan linebacker Elysee Mbem-Bosse.
According to Angelique Chengelis of the Detroit News, Harbaugh said, "It's a serious matter. I'm confident our administration and university officials will take the proper steps and are taking the proper steps."
Chengelis reported Tuesday that Mbem-Bosse tweeted about the state's "open carry" law and tagged Harbaugh's Twitter account in one of his tweets.
Michigan released a statement saying that Mbem-Bosse left the football program in mid-November.
In one of his tweets, Mbem-Bosse said he "was suspended for going to take care of my family."
Other tweets from Mbem-Bosse's account read, "Michigan is open carry. Let's not forget, and "Let's not have a murder case on your hands."
In another tweet, Mbem-Bosse wrote, "Within hours of my family crisis. F--K YOU. GN. It's on tomorrow."
When asked whether he felt threatened by Mbem-Bosse, Harbaugh declined to comment beyond his initial statement on the matter.
According to 247Sports, Mbem-Bosse was a 3-star recruit who ranked as the No. 491 overall player and No. 17 inside linebacker in the class of 2016.
Mbem-Bosse attended Cedar Grove High School in Ellenwood, Georgia, before enrolling at Michigan.
According to Chengelis, the University of Michigan Police Department is investigating the tweets since Mbem-Bosse is still enrolled at the school.
