With all the news surrounding coaching movement in the off-season, there’s a lot to cover. First of all, though, I want to mention that former defensive coordinator Greg Robinson, who worked under Rich Rodriguez in 2009-2010, passed away from Alzheimer’s complications at the age of 70.

FORMER COACHES

Don Brown (Head Coach, UMass): UMass hired Brown to be its new head coach. This is actually his second stint as the head coach of the Minutemen; he was there from 2004-2008 and went 43-19, the best five-year record in school history. But that was when the program was in FCS (DI-AA), so this is a level up in competition.

Erik Campbell (Wide Receivers, Bowling Green State): Campbell finished up his third season as BGSU’s wide receivers coach.

Tony Dews (Running Backs, Tennessee Titans): Dews had been the running backs coach for the Titans since 2018.

Nightly Roundup: January 9, 2019

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$)
