It was a big, yet incredibly vague, story that led to the departure of a Michigan football on-field staff member last month.
Just as life appeared to be calming in Ann Arbor during a tumultuous January,
reports surfaced that quarterbacks coach Matt Weiss was being suspended pending an investigation due to alleged computer access crimes.
That in and of itself is a vague term.
It didn’t even take a week and Weiss was terminated with cause, which,
we’re now learning was subsequent to him not appearing for a meeting to discuss the investigation with the Michigan athletics brass.
Per the Detroit News’ Angelique Chengelis, Weiss’ alleged crimes were inappropriately accessing computer accounts
, and when he didn’t defend himself, it was treated as an implicit admission of guilt.
While there’s still no public knowledge about the accounts he’s accused of accessing
, and the investigation is ongoing, Michigan has moved on, having promoted offensive analyst Kirk Campbell to the QB coach position.
