The Michigan Wolverines football program has officially fired co-offensive coordinator Matt Weiss.
The 39-year-old assistant coach was on administrative leave as the university investigated alleged computer crimes.
“After a review of university policies, the athletic department has terminated the appointment of co-offensive coordinator/quarterbacks coach Matt Weiss,” athletic director Warde Manuel said in an official statement. “In line with University policy, we will not comment further on this personnel matter.”
The football world took to Twitter to react to the news.
One fan wrote, “I just need to know what he was doing on that computer.”
“It must be really serious if UM is actually taking action,” said another.
“I love how Michigan always does this stuff after the fact. Never let it affect your game/season, just sweep it under the rug unless it’s convenient,” added another. .
Weis was promoted to co-offensive coordinator ahead of the 2022 season after originally joining the program in 2021 as quarterbacks coach.
