Michigan football coach faces indefinite suspension during OWI investigation

Greg Scruggs, who has not even coached a practice for Michigan football yet, has found himself in trouble after being arrested for operating a vehicle while intoxicated in Ann Arbor just before 3 a.m. on Saturday morning. This news was first reported by The Detroit News’ Angelique Chengelis, putting Scruggs’ job in jeopardy less than a month into it. The Michigan football program has responded by suspending Scruggs indefinitely pending an investigation into the incident.

Head coach Sherrone Moore issued a statement regarding the situation, expressing disappointment in Scruggs’ actions and explaining that the football program and athletic department are reviewing the details of the incident. It remains unclear who will oversee the defensive line during the upcoming spring practice sessions, set to begin on March 18. Scruggs joined Michigan after coaching at Wisconsin under Luke Fickell and has previous experience in the NFL, as well as a connection with Moore from their time at Louisville.

As the investigation unfolds, Scruggs’ future with the Wolverines remains uncertain. The program will need to make decisions about how to move forward without him as they prepare for the upcoming season. It is a disappointing start to Scruggs’ coaching tenure at Michigan, and the team will need to regroup quickly to address this unexpected setback.
