ANN ARBOUR, Mich.michigan football fired co-offensive coordinator Matt Weiss after police launched an investigation into “computer access crimes” at the team’s premises.

The Athletic Department confirmed earlier this week, following a report from ESPN, that Weiss, who also served as the team’s quarterbacks coach, had been placed on leave.

U of M police said the crimes took place at Schembechler Hall from Dec. 21-23. Weiss has been absent from the team and off the recruiting trail during the investigation.

Michigan announced Friday, Jan. 20, that Weiss is no longer part of the program.

“After a review of university policies, the athletic department has terminated the appointment of offensive coordinator/quarterbacks coach Matt Weiss,” the university said in a statement. “As per university policy, we will have no further comment on this personnel matter.”

Here is a statement from Weiss:

Weiss spent two seasons on Jim Harbaugh’s team, helping the Wolverines to two wins over Ohio State, two Big Ten championships, and two college football playoff appearances. Michigan went 25-3 during that span.

After spending his first season at Ann Arbor coaching quarterbacks, Weiss took over as co-coordinator alongside Sherrone Moore, who was promoted to offensive line coach.
