A former fan favorite at Michigan will be returning to Ann Arbor.

Standout wide receiver Roy Roundtree, who was a member of the program from 2009-2012, is making a return to Michigan to begin his Division I coaching career.

Roundtree will be taking the place of Michigan grad assistant Joe Hastings, and will be working with the wide receivers, reports Aaron McCann of MLive Media Group.

Roundtree began his Michigan career as a four-star recruit out of Ohio, one of the many good players from the Buckeye state that chose to go up north to play.

On the field, Roundtree is remembered for his incredible catch in the corner of the endzone to stun Notre Dame in 2011.

Later in his career, Roundtree had the luxury of wearing the legendary No. 21 at Michigan, which was at one time worn by former Heisman trophy winner Desmond Howard.

Roundtree joined the Cincinnati Bengals in 2013 as an undrafted free agent, but was unfortunately cut just before the season began.

He began his coaching career at a satellite campus for Colorado State University, and this past season was the wide receivers coach at Division II Indiana State University.

Jim Harbaugh has added a reputable Wolverine to his coaching staff, and could end up being a solid, personable coach for a young wide receiving core.

Welcome home, Roy.
