After facing multiple roadblocks early in his first spring as Michigan coach, Sherrone Moore finally thought he had put his coaching staff together. Moore's most recent hire, which should have been his final hire for his 2024 staff, was when he walked into Columbus and brought running backs coach Tony Alford to Ann Arbor. And just when it looked like Moore was now able to focus on football he got hit with a blow when new defensive line coach Greg Scruggs was arrested for alleged Operating While Intoxicated (OWI) in the early morning hours of March 16.


Michigan initially suspended Scruggs indefinity while the football team and athletic department investigated what happened. According to Moore, Scruggs did take accountability for his actions. Thursday Scruggs resigned from his position according to a statement released by Moore. The resignation sends Moore back on the coach recruiting trail again to find Scruggs' replacement. 

“I just received notice that Greg Scruggs has resigned his position, effective immediately. I am unable to comment further as this is a university matter" Sherrone Moore


Scruggs was arrested late on March 16 after an officer viewed his car with the hazards on and not moving for a couple of minutes. The officer, after talking to Scruggs, had him pull over and administered two breathalyzer tests. On the first test, Scruggs blew a 0.16 and on the second a 0.17 according to the arrest report obtained by 247 Sports. The legal limit in the state of Michigan is .08.


Unfortunately for Moore, this just adds to the list of questionable coaching hires over the past few years at Michigan. Moore will now need to take some of his focus off his coaching duties and look to find Scruggs' replacement.
