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.

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!
