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 inside the football team’s offices on campus.

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

“After a review of university policies, the athletic department has terminated the appointment of co-offensive coordinator/quarterbacks coach Matt Weiss,” the statement read. “Consistent with university policy, we will have no further comment on this personnel matter.”

Weiss, 39, responded moments after his firing was announced via Twitter: “I am proud of the success we achieved over the last two seasons and grateful to all of the Michigan 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 returning my focus to the game that I love.”
