Nightly Roundup: January 9, 2019


January 9, 2020

A couple players announced plans to transfer: DB Jaylen Kelly-Powell (LINK) and RB Tru Wilson (LINK). I don’t think either departure will really affect Michigan on the field.

Despite expectations to the contrary, 2020 cornerback signee Darion Green-Warren is not enrolled this semester. He did sign his National Letter of Intent to Michigan, but supposedly his high school/graduation paperwork was not processed on time. Now he’s expected to arrive in April. I was just pumping up E.J. Holland of The Wolverine the other day, and E.J. says Green-Warren should be able to participate in spring ball when he arrives . . . which I don’t understand at all. Back in my days at Michigan, the winter semester didn’t wrap until mid-April, and Michigan’s spring game is usually done by then. (LINK$)

Hit the jump for more.

Some Devin Funchess footage I hadn’t seen before:

Mike Leach has left Washington State to be the head coach at Mississippi State:

Meanwhile, former Michigan assistant Jim McElwain might be in line to take the WSU job:

    McElwain would be good at Wazzu. Might even take over the state, with Peterson having stepped down

    The Pirate will get eaten alive in Starkville. They have little patience for outsiders, less for coaches who ignore a full side of the ball, and that weirdness? He may not make it more than two full seasons

    McElwain doesn’t have what it takes to win at WSU.

    Leach should do well at Miss State. He knows how to run a program played at a disadvantage against more talented programs.
