University of Michigan police are reportedly investigating a series of threats made apparently towards Jim Harbaugh through the Twitter account with the name of a football player on Michigan’s 2017 roster.

An account under the partial name of linebacker Elysee Mbem-Bosse and with an avatar of Mbem-Bosse tweeted a series of entries Monday night including a reference to a “family crisis” and tweets like “Michigan is open carry. Let’s not forget. Not your friend.” “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.” “And I was suspended for going to take care of my family. You [expletive] [clown emoji]”

The screenshot of the last tweet includes a reply tagging Harbaugh’s Twitter handle. The tweets have been deleted and were screenshotted and posted to Reddit’s college football section and the message board part of Michigan blog MGoBlog.

According to MLive.com, University of Michigan police have launched an investigation into the threats and a spokesperson did not provide any details of the investigation to the outlet.

Mbem-Bosse is not currently listed on Michigan’s football roster and a statement from the school Tuesday afternoon said he left the team in November.  The Georgia native played primarily on special teams as a sophomore in 2017 and appeared in seven games as a freshman in 2016.
