Michigan’s Minick suspended indefinitely after arrest
ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) — Michigan associate athletic director for football Jim Minick was suspended indefinitely Wednesday, four days after he was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol in Pittsfield Township.
“Jim Minick made a regrettable decision last week and was arrested for operating a vehicle while intoxicated,” Wolverines coach Jim Harbaugh said in a statement. “Jim makes no excuses, regrets this decision and understands the consequences for his actions. Due to the serious nature of this event, Jim Minick has been suspended indefinitely and we ask for your understanding while we address the situation.”
The 50-year-old Minick joined Harbaugh’s staff in January. Minick is a retired Marine officer.
