Pep has taken another job sounds like, and the problem isn’t the QB or Pep, it’s Harbaugh. It’s his boring, stupid offense with his fingerprints all over it.
Shea was actually pretty good all things considered. You saw how bad Speight, O’Korn, and Peters looked playing in this shit show offense for these stupid coaches, right? McCaffrey has shown next to nothing and newsflash: Joe Milton sucks at playing QB. Better pray to god that Shea doesn’t get hurt or 2019 will be ugly as shit.
In other news, TE Zach Gentry has declared for the NFL draft. Which makes no sense to me, seeing as how he has some ways to go as a blocker still and he dropped more big key passes in the biggest games this season than any WR/TE that I’ve ever seen at Michigan. Should’ve stayed in school and improved.
Brandon Peters actually played ok. The fact that Speight was the starting qb tells me that the coaching staff has no grasp at deterring the best an on the roster. I believe that was true in 2018 as well. Say what you will, but Shea did nothing to wow me. He did have a solid completion percentage, but when you throw to your tight ends a million times, or Nico and DPJ catch wvwrything, I’m not sure how much of that’s on the qb.
Shea didn’t lose games, but I’m not sure he went out and won them either.

As mentioned on the Ohio State off season thread Michigan's DL coach Greg Mattison will be the Buckeyes next DC.


https://www.detroitnews.com/story/sports/college/university-michigan/wolverines/2019/01/07/defensive-line-coach-greg-mattison-departs-michigan-ohio-state/2503884002/


Mattison's sizable contract was up and there were rumors of him retiring but this is a surprise.   I'm guessing Michigan decided not to extend his contract.    Also rumors that Ohio State is talking to Michigan LB coach Al Washington and Michigan DC Brown may be off to be head coach at Temple.

I've been waiting for a shake up on the offensive side of the program.

LB coach Al Washington to Ohio State.  If you can't beat 'em join 'em I guess.  I think this makes DC Brown to Temple more likely since Washington was one of his guys.

Not sure it means anything in regards to Don Brown. 
I have to admit, as much as I’ve enjoyed Don Brown’s defenses dominating over-marched opponents, his defenses have a really bad habit of not showing up in the big games vs the best teams.
Ideally I’d like him to stay and hire some fresh blood that might bring some new ideas and wrinkles. Not sure he’s ever going to change his “we have to play man to man coverage across the board” MO though. Works great vs most teams. Works very badly vs teams that actually have the skill talent to dice it up. See: PSU last year or OSU this year.

Class of 2020 OT Myles Hinton of Georgia- a 5* and the #1 OT and a top 10 player in the nation in the 247Composite- and little brother of Michigan signee DT Chris Hinton commits to- Stanford. 

Man the hits just keep on coming. Myles Hinton’s CRYSTAL BALLZ were 100% Michigan. He was a heavy lean to Michigan. Going to Stanford. 

Harbaugh can’t get jack shit right it seems like. Probably his worst 2 months ever as coach.

Harbaugh shit the bed here imo. This one was a layup with mom and dad heavily in Michigan’s corner. 
Two ELITE 5* plug and play OTs he should’ve had in back to back recruiting years in in-stater Logan Brown and Myles Hinton and he gets nada. 
And this is exactly why Michigan’s OL sucks vs the good teams starting a 6’3 tackle in Runyon Jr and a guy who won’t sniff the NFL in JBB. 
If Harbaugh wants to run his stupid boring offense he needs to starting getting elite tackles with elite size elite length and elite athleticism like those two.

Sounds like Bama co-OC Josh Gattis not going to Maryland, instead going to Michigan

Have to think this means Pep Hamilton is on his way out. 

Even if Harbaugh doesn’t turn over the reigns it’s an upgrade for the simple fact that Gattis is a waaaaaay better recruiter than Pep. Pep was maybe the worst recruiter on that staff. Gattis is a hot shot recruiter who will be a big boost to a staff that just lost two great recruiters in Washington & Mattison. 

Have to think Gattis must’ve gotten some assurances he’d get the reigns and do what he wants on offense. Otherwise, why take the job ?

Jeff Ermann saying Gattis took the Maryland offer and shopped it around for a better one.  Could add some juice to the Michigan-Maryland game next year
