The Wolverines have themselves a new offensive coordinator.
According to Bruce Feldman and Chris Vannini, Michigan has hired Alabama co-offensive coordinator Josh Gattis to run its offense.
BREAKING: #Alabama Co-OC Josh Gattis will become the new offensive coordinator at #Michigan, sources tell me & @ChrisVannini. This is a big addition for Jim Harbaugh and the Wolverines: https://t.co/Nxcf5X2EVn— Bruce Feldman (@BruceFeldmanCFB) January 10, 2019
Gattis hasn't been in the coaching realms long, beginning his career as a position coach at Wake Forest in 2011. He got his first shot at co-coordinating an offense this season at Alabama, also serving as the team's receivers coach.
This wouldn't be the first time Michigan nabbed a Bama offensive coordinator. They poached Doug Nussmeier from Alabama before the 2014 season and it didn't work out swimmingly. The Wolverines finished a putrid 115th out of 128 teams in terms of total offense and had just a 5-7 record. Brady Hoke was fired shortly after.
We'll wait and see if this hire has similar results!
