Former Michigan player, coach Andy Moeller gets two years probation for DUI

By Staff

Baltimore Ravens offensive line coach Andy Moeller, a former Michigan football player and coach, was sentenced to two years of supervised probation for driving under the influence.

The Baltimore Sun reported on Monday that Moeller "was ordered by a Baltimore County District Court judge to abstain from alcohol and continue his rehabilitation, which includes two Alcohol Anonymous meetings a week, random drug testing and direct reports to the court every 60 days."

Maryland State Police arrested Moeller after he was pulled over for speeding on the Maryland beltway on Sept. 18. He was given probation for driving while visibly impaired in Ann Arbor in 2007 and has been arrested three times since on alcohol-related charges.

The Baltimore Sun reports he will also likely face a suspension from the NFL under its personal conduct policy.

Since his arrest in September, the newspaper said, Moeller has attended 52 self-help meetings and passed 23 random alcohol tests. He's also regularly visiting a psychiatrist and psychologist.

Moeller, the son of former Michigan head coach Gary Moeller, was a four-year letterman (1983-86) and two-year starting linebacker for the Wolverines. He was part of Lloyd Carr's coaching staff from 2000 to 2007.

I knew Andy well when he was on the staff at Army. I feel badly for him and hope he is able to kick this thing. Good Night and Good Luck

I've always liked the Moeller family. As both players and coaches they've meant a lot to the Michigan team. Good luck Andy!

blu Mark, you are absolutely correct and if this is the wake up call I say congradulations before someone gets hurt bad.

Passing 23 random alcohol tests is nothing to sneeze at- it sounds to me like he's on the good road to recovery. I wish him well.

Why, why, why waste the blessings of your life due to alcohol? Throw that alcohol away and be the achiever and enjoy life!
