What’s going on? Michigan offensive coordinator Tim Drevno has resigned.
Michigan loses OC Tim Drevno
Michigan fans, you’re not going to have Tim Drevno to kick around anymore.
Even with Jim Harbaugh as the head coach. Even with a few great recruiting classes. Even with more talent than at least 100 other teams, Michigan was 91st in the nation last season in scoring and 105th in total offense.
Granted, the offense didn’t exactly take a slew of chances helped by a great defense, but that was still no excuse. Michigan is supposed to average more than 349 yards and 25.2 points per game.
And now the Wolverines don’t have Drevno, who announced he was resigning his position after serving under Harbaugh at Stanford, San Francisco, and then with Michigan, handling the offensive line as well as the offense.
The offense might have struggled, but Drevno was one of the program’s key recruiters. However, it’s Michigan. The recruiting will be fine.
Does this open things up for Jim McElwain to take over? The former Florida head coach signed on this week to handle the wide receivers, and now this makes it easier for him take over.
This season, Michigan returns QB Brandon Peters along with Ole Miss transfer Shea Patterson to rev up a passing game that should be far stronger. The top nine pass catchers from last year are back, Karan Higdon and Chris Evans are back to handle the ground game, and three starters are back up front.
McElwain and the rest of the staff will have plenty to work with.
