It did say co-OC right?  I assume that means Pep is staying
Been rumors for months that Pep wouldn’t be back next year and was told to go look for an NFL job.
They didn’t have any open offensive staff positions. Only had two defensive positions open. Think this means Pep is toast. He’s dead weight. Shit recruiter, shit OC, AND they pay him over $1 million a year. Insanity. No one is dying to pay that clown $1.2 million a year. Make no sense that Michigan pays him that kind of money. Harbaugh just hooking up his boy right there. If Pep was on the open market he’d have a tough time getting an OC job let alone one that pays him that kind of dough.

Liking the hire more and more just reading about this guys chops as a recruiter and the work he did with Penn State and Bama’s WRs. 

Michigan has 3 elite talents at WR coming into their jr seasons in DPJ, Black, and Nico, and a pair of talented kids going into their sophomore year in Ronnie Bell and Oliver Martin. They are also bribing in a very talented frosh in Cornelius Johnson. 

With a little bit of luck in the health department and some development that WR crew could really take off next season if this guy is allowed to change that offense around. 

Not many teams will have a WR crew as talented as this Michigan one next year. Would be a huge shame if it didn’t make a big leap forward with Patterson coming back and a healthy Black and a new OC and WRs coach.

He seems to be an ace recruiter and a WR guru. Two things Michigan desperately needed right now. 
If he can take Black, DPJ, and Nico to the next level and ensure that 80% of the targets go to the WRs and not the fricken TEs- than yeah- he will be a home run hire. Black is so smooth, DPJ is so athletic, and Nico is just so damn big. They compliment each other very well.

Okay, he coached the WRs for a year at Western. He good.

press release said Gattis was the OC. No Co in the title and also said he would be calling the plays.

That means- bye bye Pep. Probably see Josh McDaniels of the Patriots lil bro Ben McDaniels get hired as the QB coach and have Gattis be the OC/WR coach. 

Sounds like Boston College Co-DC Campille and Penn State’s DL coach Spencer are the top two defenisve targets on the board to replace GMatt and Al Washington.

I think it's a little weird Bama didn't seem interested in keeping him.

Oh please. Bama just lost basically their entire offensive staff from the best offense they’ve ever had. 
Locksley got the HC job at Maryland, Dan Enos got the OC job at Miami, Gattis got the OC job at Michigan and their OL coach Brent Key left for Co-OC and OL coach at Georgia Tech.
That’s what happens when you have a record setting offense. You lose coaches. They all left for promotions. Enos and Gattis drop the CO title and get full control, Locksley got a head job in the P5, and the OL coach also got a bump in pay and better title. They all did.

Boston College Co-DC Anthony Campanile hired by Michigan. Sounds like he’ll be coaching Safeties and Chris Partridge will go back to coaching LBs.

But...Gattis didn't get a promotion.  With Locksley gone, he would seemingly be OC at Alabama with an amazing amount of talent returning. Instead, he was going to Maryland and then Michigan to also be the OC.  I'm not knocking him as a coach, I just don't understand what the reasoning is there.

He’d have more than likely had to share the CO OC title with Enos assuming both stayed. More money, no sharing of title. Easy choice to make.
He was a done deal to go to Maryland with Locksley for a month anyway. Bama knew he wasn’t going to stay. Only thing that changed was the Michigan offer at the last possible second to snatch him away from Maryland.
Bama only has the RB coach left on staff. Something tells me that offense is going to go backwards drastically in 2019. Lost it’s entire staff and Georgia and Clemson sort of laid down the blue print to expose Tua.

Just getting back from a four-week vacation (Utah Nat'l Parks in the offseason!!) and am slow on the uptake, but if you are implying this could be similar to the Nussmeier hire (...) maybe (...) because always maybe. But the situations aren't very similar. 
For one, Harbaugh, not Hoke, made the hire and he has been a great hirer of coaching talent**. For two, whereas Alabama fans were cheering Nuss out the door, they are clearly disappointed about losing Gattis. And in the neutral-but-different-than-Nuss category, Gattis hasn't ever been an OC. That last one remains a legitimate question/concern/curiosity, but in his last two stops, he's been part of two "highest end" offenses, likely absorbed plenty, and is a fast rider for other reasons. I.E., no one is questioning his recruiting or WR chops.
**(this one is worth spending an extra second on, however, since both of Harbaugh's failed hires - Drevno and Pep - have been OCs. Skepticism is healthy. However, both of those were lapdog hires, whereas Gattis is the first Harbaugh OC to be reported to take over play calling. Maybe that doesn't qualify as a paradigm shift, but it is an extra reason for positivity.)

Gattis was a part of Moorehead’s 2017 Penn State offense and the 2018 “Greatest offense ever” at Bama. 

Both those offense were wide open, spread it out, up tempo, fast paced, get the ball in playmakers hands in space and let them do their thing. 

Style of offenses that are drastically different to what Michigan has been running. As long as he’s allowed to implement those kinds of changes I love the hire. The real story of his success or failure will be just how much control of that offense that Harbaugh hands over. Jim can be difficult to work for and get along with. And JIM has been the OC of these shit show offenses. No one else.
