Adjust Comment Print

MI linebacker Elysee Mbem-Bosse sent a series of threatening tweets Saturday which were later deleted that appeared to be aimed at Wolverines head coach Jim Harbaugh. At the end of one thread, Mbem-Bosse lamented that he was suspended for "going to take care of my family" and tagged head coach Jim Harbaugh in the comments.

Screenshots of multiple tweets from Mbem-Bosse's locked Twitter account were posted to Reddit on Tuesday morning.


Mbem-Bosse's bio still is live on the Wolverines' website.

As of Tuesday afternoon, police have reportedly met with football and athletic department staff members to gather information on Mbem-Bosse and his whereabouts following a string of tweets in which the player said, among other things, "Michigan is open carry". Here's one in particular in which Mbem-Bosse makes a pretty clear threat.


"Within hours of my family crisis", he wrote. [Expletive] YOU. GN (Good Night).

In another message, he tagged the MI coach: "And was suspended for going to take care of my family".


Mbem-Bosse is still listed in the MI student directory. Deadspin points out that he is not listed on the team's roster this spring.
