Harbaugh was suspended for one game after an investigation found that he had struck an official.
Jim Harbaugh has been suspended for one game by the NFL after an investigation found that he had struck an official. The incident occurred in the third quarter of a Thursday night game against the Los Angeles Rams on October 4th, where Harbaugh was seen to hit downfield official Anthony Perry. The 49ers coach was not ejected from the game at the time, but was later suspended and fined $50,000 for his actions.
It’s unclear what exactly prompted Harbaugh to hit Perry. However, it is believed that there may have been some sort of altercation between Harbaugh and Rams defensive lineman Aaron Donald. Donald himself wasn’t penalized or fined for his role in whatever happened between him and Harbaugh.
