Josh Gattis, Wolverine

Michigan announced on Thursday afternoon that Alabama co-offensive coordinator and wide receivers coach Josh Gattis has been named the offensive coordinator. Earlier in the day, he was reported to be headed to Maryland for their OC job. Alabama quarterbacks coach Dan Enos is reportedly being elevated to offensive coordinator for the Crimson Tide.

This is a weird development, because the last we heard, Pep Hamilton (QB coach) and Ed Warinner (OL coach) were both planning to stay on Michigan’s staff, and Harbaugh was supposedly keeping offensive analyst Ben McDaniel on as wide receivers coach. Into town blows Gattis, who would seemingly make McDaniel superfluous, along with usurping some supposed responsibilities from Hamilton and Warinner. On top of all that, it was reported prior to Michigan’s announcement that Gattis was headed to Maryland. Which one of those guys is on his way out of town? I’m sure we’ll find out shortly.

I can’t help thinking this is a positive development for Michigan, because Gattis (34 years old) is a young coach, a very good recruiter, and someone who’s not averse to tempo. He also has a great track record of developing wide receivers, including All-Americans Jerry Jeudy (Alabama), Jordan Matthews (Vanderbilt), and Jordan White (Western Michigan), plus All-Big Ten guys Daesean Hamilton and Chris Godwin (Penn State). Basically, the worst he has done is coach Hamilton and Godwin at PSU, two guys who are in the midst of carving out solid NFL careers with the Broncos and Buccaneers, respectively.

Here’s what the staff looks like now:

HC: Jim Harbaugh
OC/WR: Jim McElwain Ben McDaniel Josh Gattis
QB: Pep Hamilton?
TE: Sherrone Moore
OL: Ed Warinner?
RB: Jay Harbaugh
DL: Greg Mattison
DC/LB: Don Brown
Viper/OLB: Al Washington
CB: Mike Zordich
S: Chris Partridge
