Jeff Meyer lands at Michigan

Jeff Meyer, the former Indiana assistant who has already be cleared from any serious wrong-doing in the mess that brought down Kelvin Sampson, has taken a job as an administrative specialist at Michigan.

He’ll assist coach John Beilein with….something. The release isn’t exactly clear. But Beilein, in the statement, expressed confidence in the long-time coach. Meyer was cleared of any major violations shortly after the hearing before the NCAA committee on infractions ended on June 14.

Contrary to what the Michigan press release says, Meyer spent the last two seasons at IU. That’s a significant fact, because his hiring certainly played some role — however minor — in luring Eric Gordon to Indiana. Meyer coached Eric Gordon Sr. at Liberty.
