Ex-Michigan Player May Have Threatened Jim Harbaugh In Disturbing Tweets

Threats of violence on college campuses are not to be taken lightly, and Michigan authorities are reacting accordingly.

The University of Michigan Police Department is investigating a string of disturbing tweets from former Wolverines linebacker Elysee Mbem-Bosse that appeared to include threats against head coach Jim Harbaugh.

The investigation started after a Reddit user posted screenshots of several profane tweets from Mbem-Bosse’s account Monday night. Mbem-Bosse seemingly was upset he had been suspended last season after leaving the team to attend to a “family crisis.”

“Within hours of my family crisis,” Mbem-Bosse wrote in one since-deleted tweet. “F— YOU. GN. It’s on tomorrow.”

He tagged Harbaugh in another tweet, then made a direct violent threat.

“Michigan is open carry. Let’s not forget. Not your friend,” Mbem-Bosse wrote. “They sent someone to my crib before. I was nice enough to call the cops next time I’m calling the morgue. I’m talking with facts”

The ex-linebacker also tweeted “Dead and alive.” and “Let’s not have a murder case On your hands.”

Mbem-Bosse later deleted his series of tweets and made his Twitter account — which isn’t verified — private.

The Georgia native, who came in with Michigan’s 2016 recruiting class, left the team last November and no longer is part of the football program, Michigan’s athletic department said in a statement Tuesday.

Mbem-Bosse still is enrolled at Michigan, according to athletic director Warde Manuel, who added Harbaugh is “aware” of the threats.
