Why it Matters

  • Weiss has been a coach at UM since 2021
  • He helped lead the Wolverines to back-to-back berths in the College Football Playoff
  • The Wolverines had one of the top offenses in the nation in 2022 with Weiss as co-offensive coordinator

Following the news that he had been fired, Weiss took to Twitter to release the following statement:

“I am proud of the success we achieved over the last two seasons and grateful to all of the Michigan players, coaches, and staff. The potential of Team 144 knows no bounds. I have nothing but respect for the University of Michigan and the people who make it such a great place. I look forward to putting this matter behind me and returning my focus to the game that I love.”

Matt Weiss By the Numbers

During the 2022 season, Weiss helped orchestrate one of the top offenses in the nation.

  • 238.9 rushing yards per game (No. 5)
  • 41 rushing touchdowns (N. 2)
  • 65 offensive touchdowns (No. 9)

What is next for Matt Weiss?

In fact, don’t be shocked if Weiss heads back to the Baltimore Ravens, where he was a coach from 2009-2020.
