Report: Cocaine deal led to Justin Feagin’s dismissal at Michigan 

By Jason Lieser

The Detroit Free Press reported yesterday former American Heritage quarterback Justin Feagin was kicked off the Michigan football team after an arrest for selling cocaine.

Aside from his involvement with cocaine transactions, the article, which cites police reports says the following:

– Feagin admitted to selling drugs while enrolled at American Heritage.

– One transaction ultimately led to a Michigan dorm room catching fire.

– One Michigan student said Feagin was known around campus for selling marijuana.

When the Post contacted Feagin, 20, last month, he said, “I don’t got no comment on nothing,” and hung up the phone. Now it seems obvious why he did not want to discuss it.

ESPN has reported Feagin planned to transfer to Appalachian State, though this story could make that difficult.

Feagin was the Post‘s 2007 small schools Player of the Year. He helped American Heritage to a state championship and put up incredible numbers: 1,420 passing yards and 19 touchdown passes, 1,313 rushing yards 25 touchdown on the ground in 14 games.
