In the immediate aftermath of the Capital One Orange Bowl,
the College Football Playoff semifinal that hosted the Michigan Wolverines,
it appeared that the maize and blue were headed for a relatively uneventful offseason.
However, it didn’t go that way exactly.
Jim Harbaugh flirted with the NFL, defensive coordinator Mike Macdonald went back to the Baltimore Ravens,
Josh Gattis made a lateral move to become Miami’s new offensive coordinator,
and Shaun Nua left for the same position at USC. All of this happening after most teams have long had their new coaching staffs set.
But on Wednesday, Michigan football finalized what will be its 2022 coaching staff with some staff elevations (and the presumed,
but yet to be announced hire of defensive coordinator Jesse Minter, who comes aboard from Vanderbilt).
