ANN ARBOR, Mich. (WXYZ) — Michigan co-offensive coordinator Matt Weiss has been placed on leave, a team spokesperson confirmed to 7 Action Sports on Tuesday.
In a statement to ESPN Tuesday night, university police said the department is investigating a possible crime that happened at Schembechler Hall, the school's football facility. ESPN says the statement did not specifically name anyone, but a spokesperson said Weiss hasn’t been around the team recently.
Weiss released a statement to ESPN:
"I am aware of the ongoing investigation by the University of of Michigan Police Department and fully cooperating with investigators. I look forward to the matter being resolved. Out of respect for the integrity of the investigation, I will not have any further comment."
A neighbor told ESPN last week that unmarked cars showed up at the co-offensive coordinator’s home. The details of that search are unclear at this time.
