Sam McGuffie has apparently made a successful career pivot after leaving football as the former Wolverine running back was recently named a member of the 2018 U.S. Olympic men’s bobsled team.

McGuffie will be a member of the push crew, according to a release from Team USA. In addition to that job, McGuffie has also earned brakeman duties in the two-man.

You may recall McGuffie was a touted recruit that logged significant minutes for Rich Rodriguez back in 2008. He rushed for 486 yards and three scores in addition to registering 19 catches for 175 yards and another score before concussions cut his time short in Ann Arbor. He left Michigan following the 2008 season and transferred to Rice.

USABS CEO Darrin Steele provided these statement on the announcement of the 2018 U.S. Olympic men’s bobsled team:

“The men’s team showed their grit this season, and Hunter deserves credit for his selflessness, teamwork and composure this past weekend. We could only name 12 people to the team, but there are a lot of players behind the scenes and on the ice that helped make the dreams of those 12 come true. We lost our anchor when Steven Holcomb passed away in May, and the athletes on this team stepped up to honor him the best way they knew how, which is by laying it all on the line week after week. These athletes made sure the legacy of the U.S. program continued to grow on the trajectory that he set for us.”
