MI hires Alabama assistant as offensive coordinator

11 January, 2019, 11:00 | Author: Heidi Alvarez
  • Josh Gattis spent four seasons at Penn State before he was at Alabama in 2018. More

Gattis, a North Carolina native, does have some experience in the state, serving as Western Michigan's wide receivers coach in 2011 under Bill Cubit. "My family and I couldn't be more excited to arrive in Ann Arbor". MI did not use an official offensive coordinator in 2018. However, as the Wolverines offense got better from 2017 to 2018 - but didn't put all of the elite playmakers in the best positions to succeed - it looks like head coach Jim Harbaugh made a decision to swing for the fences.

Gattis will join the Wolverines after MI went without an offensive coordinator in 2018.

In a statement released by Michigan Thursday afternoon, Harbaugh said, "The offense and passing games under Josh's direction have achieved at a very high level throughout his coaching career".

Gattis helped Alabama reach the College Football Playoff National Championship Game and mentored All-American receiver Jerry Jeudy, the 2018 Biletnikoff Award victor, who caught 68 passes for 1,315 yards (19.3 avg.) and 14 touchdowns.

It is unclear where Gattis will fit in, in relation to Hamilton, who is also assistant head coach, under Harbaugh.

It's the first time in Harbaugh's four-year tenure that the Wolverines will have an official OC.

Gattis was formerly a safety who played for Wake Forest before getting drafted by the Jacksonville Jaguars. According to The Athletic, Gattis will take over play-calling.

Harbaugh's staff has undergone some significant changes this offseason after he said following Michigan's loss to Florida in the Peach Bowl that he expected very few. They haven't finished better than No. 50 in total offense in any of Harbaugh's four seasons.

The Wolverines lost two defensive coaches to Ohio State earlier in the week, as defensive line coach Greg Mattison and linebackers coach Al Washington joined the Buckeyes.

Alabama, like MI, was long known for a run-heavy offense but recently evolved to a more modern approach with quarterbacks Jalen Hurts and Tua Tagovailoa.

It bears mention that Locksley, not Gattis, held that role at Alabama. With Shea Patterson back for his senior season in 2019, that ratio could be different next season.
