AP's FOIA request indicates ex-Michigan staffer Connor Stalions did not file expense reports

Former Michigan staffer, Connor Stalions, central to an NCAA sign-stealing investigation, didn't file any expense reports during his 17-month employment, as reported by the school.

The Associated Press filed a Freedom of Information Act request for Stalions' expense reports, but the school stated there were no responsive records.

Stalions, a recruiting analyst, had an annual salary of approximately $55,000 and resigned after being suspended during the NCAA investigation.

The NCAA documented plans and budget information related to the sign-stealing scheme of Michigan opponents.

The Big Ten Conference suspended Michigan's head coach, Jim Harbaugh, for three games, stating it lacked evidence that he knew about the sign-stealing scheme.

The Big Ten's penalty led to a hearing scheduled for Friday, where the school aims to temporarily lift the suspension and allow Harbaugh to coach upcoming games.

Stalions purchased tickets to games, having individuals sit in specific seats to capture video of sideline signals, according to evidence shared by the NCAA.

The NCAA does not explicitly ban sign-stealing but has rules against using electronic devices for recording opponents' signals and in-person, advanced scouting during the season.
