ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh has sent an email to parents of players on his team, refuting a report saying representatives are working on his departure from his alma mater.

"I am reaching out to let you know that the recent claims that I am `pursuing an exit strategy' are total crap," Harbaugh wrote in an email, a copy of which was obtained Wednesday by The Associated Press. "It's an annual strategy driven by our enemies to cause disruption to our program and to negatively recruit.

"By the way, I don't even have an `agent or representative.' I am committed to your sons, their education and their development as football players and people."

Terps hit snag in Locksley's first year
