On Friday, Michigan’s quarterbacks coach and co-offensive coordinator, Matt Weiss, was fired amidst a police investigation into a computer access crime committed in late-December of 2022. Weiss was a huge part of the Wolverines’ top-6 scoring and total offense during their 13-1 season a year ago.
Friday afternoon, Michigan athletics released the following statement:
“After a review of university policies, the athletic department has terminated the appointment of co-offensive coordinator/quarterbacks coach Matt Weiss. Consistent with university policy, we will have no further comment on this personal matter.”
In response, Matt Weiss released the following statement via Twitter:

Now that Matt Weiss is out as the Wolverines’ co-offensive coordinator, Michigan football must search for a quarterbacks coach at the very least. Heading into the 2023 football season, Michigan fans and national media have high hopes for the Wolverines. U-M brings back loads of talent, has a top-10 portal class, and more as they search for a third-straight conference title and more this fall.
The clear cut answer for offensive coordinator seems to be the other half of Michigan’s co-offensive coordinator system from 2022. I expect Sherrone Moore to leave the “co” tag in 2022, and take over as the program’s only offensive coordinator.
As far as quarterbacks coach and passing game coordinator go, the Wolverines will likely look outside of the program. Michigan football has a good amount of options from here — where the Wolverines decide to go will likely be one of the bigger offseason stories to follow.
