Scruggs was part of Luke Fickell’s staff at Cincinnati from 2018-2021. He spent 2022 on the New York Jets’ staff before becoming the Badgers defensive line coach entering the 2023 season.
The young assistant had a five-year NFL career with the Seattle Seahawks (2012-2015), Chicago Bears (2015-2016) and New England Patriots (2016). He was originally a seventh-round pick out of Louisville.
The addition of Scruggs helps Moore round out his new coaching staff at Michigan after Jim Harbaugh took a number of Wolverine assistants with him to the Chargers.
From a Wisconsin perspective, the Badgers are losing yet another assistant this offseason. Scruggs is the third to leave, joining Mike Brown, who took the Notre Dame wide receivers coach job, and Colin Hitschler, who is the safeties coach at Alabama.
Fickell has work to do before spring practice begins and as the class of 2025 recruiting efforts ramp up.

The news has not been confirmed by either program, but Wisconsin defensive lineman Curt Neal’s post on X could be an indication.
No deal has officially been signed yet but Michigan and Wisconsin DL coach Greg Scruggs are heading towards finalizing a deal in the next 24-48 hours, I’m told. Wisconsin staff and players have been informed.
Hint here from DL Curtis Neal tonight. pic.twitter.com/aCUZT6te4z
