Michigan Friday: The Staff is Changing Quickly

We are really going to have to get used to this.  Michigan just lost their brand new Recruiting Coordinator Matt Doherty to Miami.   He hasn't even worked for Jimmy that long and Miami came calling to get him.   Matt had worked with new Miami coach Mark Richt at Georgia.

This moved caused another move, as we have suspected for some time that Jimmy has hired Devin Bush, Sr. as a Defensive Analyst.  This is a great hire for many reasons.   Bush is a very well known HS head coach in Florida, a former star at FSU, former 1st round draft pick and of course son of current EE Devin Bush, Jr.   If he is able to move the needle to get more Florida talent to Ann Arbor, this will be considered a great hire. 

I expect Michigan still has a staff spot open after "Soup" Campbell went to UConn.  

Sam Webb is saying that former Wisconsin S and Michigan grad assistant Aubrey Pleasant might be in line to replace Greg Jackson.  Aubrey is currently a Defensive Quality Control Coach for the Redskins. 

  • Michigan seems to recruiting "across the street" MI LB Antjuan Simmons with he velocity he had hoped to see.   Antjuan has visited Michigan twice this month as walking a few feet from Pioneer High School doesn't seem to be an issue.   Position of need, plus a stone throws from his HS to Michigan Stadium - lets find a way to make this happen please!   Don Brown seems to be leading his recruitment, as Simmons seems like a perfect fit for his system.

  • Chad Henne re-signs with the Jags.
