In the latest episode of the “Big House Bleachers” podcast, co-hosts Michael Smeltzer and Matt Hartwell cover a range of significant events in Michigan football and basketball. The episode kicks off with an in-depth discussion on Sherrone Moore’s bold move of hiring Tony Alford from Columbus to Ann Arbor as the new Michigan running back coach, highlighting the strategic significance of this acquisition.

The conversation takes a serious turn as they address the unfortunate incident involving Greg Scruggs, the newly appointed defensive line coach, who was suspended indefinitely after being arrested for operating a vehicle while intoxicated. The co-hosts express their concerns and hopes for resolution regarding this matter.

The episode also touches on the departure of Jon Sanderson to Illinois basketball, marking a significant shift within the Big Ten basketball landscape. The bulk of the episode, however, is dedicated to the firing of Michigan’s head basketball coach, Juwan Howard. Smeltzer and Hartwell each present five candidates they believe could potentially fill the void as Michigan’s next head basketball coach, offering insights into each candidate’s coaching style, previous achievements, and how they could fit into the Michigan basketball program.
