Michigan hired former Florida HC Jim McElwain to serve as wide receivers coach.
McElwain's addition to the UM staff was first reported as in the works early in February, with the coach confirming it on Saturday and the team making the official announcement on Tuesday. While he has been named receivers coach, it's possible that his duties may extend beyond the boundaries of the position group. Sports Illustrated's Bruce Feldman reported on Friday that he could potentially see some of the work typically handled in an offensive-coordinating role. McElwain's time in two-plus years at Florida failed to yield much of an offense outside of a brief spark kindled with Will Grier prior to Grier being suspended for PED use, but he should not be judged solely on that stint -- he found plenty of offensive success as head coach at Colorado State -- and we like what he brings to the table in a secondary role for Michigan.
