Michigan Hires Alabama's Josh Gattis As Its Offensive Coordinator

Michigan hires Josh Gattis as offensive coordinator but questions remain

Former Alabama co-offensive coordinator Josh Gattis has left Tuscaloosa to become the offensive coordinator at MI, the school announced Thursday. Gattis and Locksley shared offensive coordinator duties with the Crimson Tide in 2018. He had been wide receivers coach under James Franklin since 2014.

The move, first reported by Bruce Feldman of The Athletic and Fox Sports, was confirmed by the university Thursday afternoon. "Josh will provide leadership to our offense while being a great mentor to our student-athletes and an outstanding addition to our coaching staff". "I am deeply humbled by the opportunity to serve as your offensive coordinator. This is the leadership challenge I've coveted". "My family and I couldn't be more excited to arrive in Ann Arbor".

It is unclear where Gattis will fit in, in relation to Hamilton, who is also assistant head coach, under Harbaugh.

Gattis will inherit a number of offensive weapons at MI, including quarterback Shea Patterson and wide receivers Donovan Peoples-Jones, Tarik Black and Nico Collins. Jaylen Waddle, Henry Ruggs III and Irv Smith, Jr. each had more than 700 receiving yards en route to the Tide winning the SEC title and playing in the College Football Playoff National Championship.

Before spending 2018 in Tuscaloosa, Gattis helped Penn State sign four straight top-25 recruiting classes and was named the 2015 Big Ten Recruiter of the Year by Scout.com.

Gattis, a North Carolina native, does have some experience in the state, serving as Western Michigan's wide receivers coach in 2011 under Bill Cubit. McElwain is now the head coach at Central Michigan.

Then, apparently, Jim Harbaugh swooped in.

Harbaugh's staff has undergone some significant changes this offseason after he said following Michigan's loss to Florida in the Peach Bowl that he expected very few.

Harbaugh has led MI to three 10-win seasons in four years in Ann Arbor, but hasn't yet gotten over the hump against Ohio State.

Michigan's offense didn't have an official coordinator in 2018.

MI did not have a coach with the title of offensive coordinator on staff last season.
