ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) — Michigan has hired Brian Jean-Mary as linebackers coach and Bob Shoop as safeties coach. The Wolverines also announced that they have elevated Jay Harbaugh to special teams coordinator. Harbaugh, the son of coach Jim Harbaugh, will continue coaching running backs as well. Jean-Mary was defensive coordinator at South Florida from 2017-19, and Shoop spent the last two seasons as defensive coordinator at Mississippi State. Michigan lost safeties coach Chris Partridge to Mississippi. Harbaugh says Jean-Mary and Shoop are well-respected, experienced coaches.
