Michigan Wolverines head coach Jim Harbaugh joined protestors at a rally against police brutality in Ann Arbor on Tuesday morning.

Harbaugh also participated in a protest walk that traveled through the university’s downtown campus.

The march, organized by former Michigan football walk-on and community leader Mahmoud Issa, was also attended by Wolverines basketball player Isaiah Livers along with several Michigan football players.

“They wanted to make sure they could help out to make sure their connection (to the march) was known,” Issa said of the turnout by individuals involved in Michigan athletics, via Samuel Dodge of MLive.com. “It led everyone to come out to help.”

Harbaugh's participation in the rally followed his calling out in a tweet that justice needs to be “equal and fair for all” amid the ongoing fallout from the death of George Floyd while in custody of Minneapolis police last week.

Ann Arbor Police Chief Michael Cox, Washtenaw County Sheriff Jerry Clayton and Mayor Christopher Taylor, who also participated in the protest, addressed the crowd of 100 people in attendance before the march commenced.
