The uncertainty and impatient Michigan faithful are growing frustrated by the lack of offense generated by the Wolverines the past two seasons, especially in 2018 when there were dynamic playmakers across the board.
Michigan ended the year 49th in the nation in overall offensive efficiency, a major step up from last season where it finished 91st. Even with the improvement over the past year, much more is needed from the offense to truly contend with Ohio State in the race for the Big Ten title next season.
With rumors circulating that current offensive coordinator Pep Hamilton will take an NFL job, Harbaugh and his staff will be in need of a new play-caller, and perhaps one with a far more imaginative mind than Hamilton.
Jedd Fisch- Assistant, Los Angeles Rams
Fisch is no stranger to Michigan and Jim Harbaugh, as he served as the passing game coordinator during Harbaugh’s inaugural 2015 season in Ann Arbor, a very successful offensive campaign. Since then, he has coached at UCLA and is enjoying a year as an offensive assistant with the electric LA Rams.
Cale Gundy- Co-Offensive Coordinator, Oklahoma
Gundy has been a part of one of the best offensive teams in college football for two years in a row, and has exactly what Michigan needs to become more effective on offense: a creative mind with the ability to integrate the run into a pass-first scheme.
Gundy is historically significant to the Sooners, both as a player and a coach. As a quarterback there from 1990-1993 and a 25-year member of the Oklahoma coaching staff, luring him to Michigan may be a tough task, but could also be necessary.
Charlie Weis, Jr.- Offensive Coordinator, Florida Atlantic
The 25-year-old has impressed at FAU in charge of Lane Kiffin’s offense after spending a year as an offensive analyst in the NFL. Weis’ offense ranked 14th in the nation in overall offensive efficiency, and has spent some time among the best coaches in football during his time at Alabama just a few years ago. A young, creative offensive coordinator is in demand in today’s college football world, and it may be time for Michigan to throw a lump of money at Weis for his services.
