Fifth-year senior defensive tackle Maurice Hurst in a game against Cincinnati on September 9, 2017.

Maurice Hurst, Michigan football’s defensive tackle, has taken up a part-time job as a driver for Uber.

In an interview Monday night with “Inside Michigan Football,” Hurst revealed he occasionally does an Uber run when he’s not busy with football.

“I do it sometimes just to clear my head or just to enjoy riding and talk to someone that I don’t know,” Hurst said.

He drove for Uber in the summer of 2016, mostly for the extra cash and flexible hours. He said he has since enjoyed his on-and-off bouts with the company.
