New Michigan DL coach resigns after arrest

Recently hired Michigan defensive line coach Greg Scruggs resigned Thursday following an arrest for operating a vehicle while intoxicated.

Wolverines head coach Sherrone Moore confirmed the resignation but declined further comment, telling ESPN it is “a university matter.”

Ann Arbor police arrested Scruggs on Saturday after finding his car stopped in an intersection with its hazard lights on. His blood-alcohol level was double the legal limit for Michigan, officials said.

Scruggs, who coached the defensive line at Wisconsin last season, was hired to join Moore’s staff on March 6. He replaced Mike Elston, who followed former coach Jim Harbaugh to the Los Angeles Chargers.

Scruggs, 33, was a defensive end who played in 18 games in the NFL with the Seattle Seahawks (2012, 2014) and Chicago Bears (2015-16).

He began his coaching career at the University of Cincinnati (2018-21) and was the New York Jets’ assistant D-line coach in 2022.

The defending national champion Wolverines began spring practice on Monday.
