Investigation into OWI leads to indefinite suspension of Michigan football coach

Greg Scruggs, who has not yet coached a practice for Michigan football, is facing significant trouble after being arrested for operating a vehicle while intoxicated in Ann Arbor just before 3 a.m. on Saturday morning. The news was first reported by The Detroit News’ Angelique Chengelis, putting Scruggs’ job in jeopardy less than a month into his new role. The Michigan football program issued a statement by head coach Sherrone Moore, announcing that Scruggs is being suspended indefinitely pending an investigation into the incident.

Coach Moore acknowledged Scruggs’ mistake and stated that he takes full accountability for his actions. The football program and athletic department have taken immediate action to suspend Scruggs while they review the details of the incident. With spring practice scheduled to start on Monday, March 18, it is unclear who will oversee the defensive line initially during the practice sessions.

Scruggs joined the Wolverines after coaching at Wisconsin as the defensive line coach under Luke Fickell. Prior to that, he spent two years as an assistant in the NFL and had worked with Fickell at Cincinnati before. He and Moore have a connection, as he played at Louisville where Moore began his coaching career. The situation remains evolving as the program investigates the incident.
