Michigan staffer no longer employed after DUI, per report

Michigan athletics staff member Fergus Connolly is reportedly no longer employed at the school, according to the Detroit Free Press’s Nick Baumgardner.

Baumgardner tweeted the news on Thursday afternoon, citing Michigan Athletics as the source.

According to a report by MLive on Wednesday, Connolly — who was the Director of Performance Science for the Michigan football program — was reportedly arrested on suspicion of drunk driving earlier this month.

Following his arrest the report states that Connolly was uncooperative with the police, doing things such as yelling obscenities at officers, refusing a breathalyzer test, being verbally and physically combative with officers and workers at the University of Michigan Emergency Room and biting a lab technician, among other things.

In the MLive article, Ann Arbor police Lt. Matthew Lige said that misdemeanor charges will likely be pressed against Connolly after lab results are released.

However, Connolly has not yet been formally charged.
