In a somewhat surprising move, former Buckeyes assistant coach Ed Warinner will be heading to Michigan to join Jim Harbaugh's staff, per a report from Bruce Feldman of FOX Sports.

Warinner was an assistant for five years with the Buckeyes, starting as the team's offensive line coach before being promoted in 2016 to the co-offensive coordinator position with Tim Beck. Both coaches were let go after the 2016 season after the Buckeyes offense struggled, culminating with an 0-fer at the hands of Clemson in the College Football Playoff.
Warinner spent last season as the offensive coordinator at Minnesota. His role at Michigan is unclear at this time, but it has been rumored that he will simply be an "offensive analyst," a position which coach Jim Harbaugh has been known to fill with big names in recent years.
Warinner's son, Edward, will be a freshman linebacker at Michigan State this upcoming season, meaning Warinner will coach against both his former employer as well as his son in 2018.
