Michigan fires co-offensive coordinator Matt Weiss

The University of Michigan fired co-offensive coordinator Matt Weiss Friday amid an investigation into alleged computer crimes in the on-campus football team’s offices.

The announcement of Weiss’s resignation was made Friday afternoon in a statement from Michigan athletic director Warde Manuel.

“Following a review of university policy, the athletic department has terminated the appointment of co-offensive coordinator/quarterbacks coach Matt Weiss,” the statement read. “In accordance with university policy, we will not be commenting further on this personnel matter.”

After previously being suspended with pay, Michigan co-offensive coordinator Matt Weiss was fired Friday.

Weiss, 39, responded shortly after his resignation was announced via Twitter: “I am proud of the success we have achieved over the past two seasons and am grateful to all of Michigan’s players, coaches and staff. I have nothing but respect for the University of Michigan and the people who make it such a great place. I look forward to putting this matter behind me and getting back to focusing on the game I love.”
