The college football regular season is nearing its end.
Some schools are making headlines for all the wrong reasons.
And one major college football program is out of control after one ugly sex scandal.
Michigan Wolverines head coach Jim Harbaugh has his best team with the school, and maybe his best team as a college coach.
Harbaugh currently has the Wolverines ranked number two in the country, but his team has been rocked by multiple scandals.
Now one football staffer was fired after attempting to meet up with a 13-year-old girl for sex.
Alex Yood got busted by internet sleuths who expose pedophiles and turn over the information to law enforcement.

In light of the incident, a school official wrote in a statement, “Alex Yood is no longer part of the athletic department…An issue was brought to our attention, and we immediately moved to handle the matter with our HR department. We are unable to comment further regarding this employment matter.”
In addition to the disturbing Yood scandal, Michigan is also being accused of stealing signs from opposing teams in an elaborate setup.
Sign stealing looks like nothing in comparison
Michigan staffer Connor Stalions was suspended by the school with pay amid allegations that he traveled to other games in order to steal signs.
Central Michigan University even opened an investigation into whether or not Stalions went undercover on the school’s sideline.
CMU athletic director Amy Folan announced, “We became aware of these photos late yesterday and we are in the process of determining the facts surrounding them…We have no further comment at this time.”
In response to the allegations, Harbaugh said, “I do not have any knowledge or information regarding the University of Michigan football program illegally stealing signals, nor have I directed any staff member or others to participate in an off-campus scouting assignment…I have no awareness of anyone on our staff having done that or having directed that action.”
Michigan supposedly pulled a contract extension offer from Harbaugh when news of the sign-stealing allegations broke.
Worse yet, another Michigan staffer, assistant football coach Matt Weiss, was fired earlier this year for computer crimes.
And hacking too?
Associate athletic director Doug Gnodtke wrote in a termination letter to Weiss, “Based on the evidence it appears that you have inappropriately accessed the computer accounts of other individuals in violation of SPG 601.07…As a result, your appointment has been terminated with cause.”
There has been speculation that Harbaugh is itching to get back into the NFL.
Harbaugh led the San Francisco 49ers to three consecutive NFC championship game appearances—and one Super Bowl appearance—before falling out with management and ownership after a disappointing fourth season.
Harbaugh was fired despite a 44-19-1 regular season record.
One way or another, this could be Harbaugh’s last season in Ann Arbor, Michigan.
