Haven't seen any info suggesting he is or is not still around. Update please?
Is Fred Jackson still the RB coach?
It was announced when RR was fired that the entire staff was let go save for Barwis who is also gone. Considering that it was announced today that Hoke's RB coach was coming with him, Jackson appears to be out.
The new guy better have extensive knowledge of past slow Michigan RBs to which the fast new RBs can be compared.
But... that guy was also the slash Recruiting Coordinator. So, maybe there is a chance he would just have that role and not be the slash RB Coach
Can't help but feel for the Jacksons.
But, maybe Wheatley is on his way to town...
I em gitten dummer evury time I read ones of ur posts.
I have come across you before. I think it was in Flowers for Algernon.
Get back in the bakery where you belong! Out! out!
Wait is he Algernon or Charlie? He could be compared to either.
what the hell does that have to do with any post, and how good ur son is? You sound like an idiot
Ever see the movie Idiocracy?
Yeah... we'll leave it at that.

That's a contractual thing. Technically, you can't fire just the head coach - you have to fire the entire staff. Barwis is (was?) under a separate contract, so he was not let go in that action. Jackson may be rehired.
So he would have to be re-hired by Hoke.
He probably has a chance of staying seeing as they worked together previously. Right?
To Keep Freddy J!
"Haven't seen any info suggesting he is or is not still around. Update please?"
you should read more.
Agree. I think he'll be back.
You have kids? Are you kiddin mee????????
When the fuck did we get ice cream?!
O-line or D-line?
I love you
...find an administrative position for him in the Athletic Department? Based on his many years here, he kinda knows where all the bodies are buried.
What does a RB coach do anyway? Watch film and say, "you should have run there"?
By that rationale Bobby Williams should have been a helluva coach!
Not every position coach is head coach material, isn't Bobby Williams one of the main reasons Mark Ingram choose Alabama.
as most guys in the Rivals/Scout/Lemming universe will tell you, particularly in Texas, where he brought in Kellen Jones this year. I hope we keep him for that reason alone.
That's one thing. They also run a lot of drills working on proper running form, footwork, ball security, blocking and receiving. They also serve as an important liaison between the player and head coach. The HC doesn't get to spend that much time with each player. The position coaches serve as his eyes and ears much of the time. When I was at U-M, I knew one of the running backs a little. He described Jackson as his "father figure" and Carr as a "grandfather figure."
FWIW, his Wiki page still has him as part of Michigan. All other assistants in the old regime are not.
Because wikipedia is always right...right?
as the hyperbole coordinator.
Agreed -- we need one of those. It's the most important job in the universe.
if we expect to retain McGuffie.
Hoke's RB coach was a QB coach before his time at SDSU. Maybe Jackson will still be retained as the RB coach and Hoke's guy will be the QBs coach.
Whats up with Trolls lately isn't there a gas station in Ohio looking for an attendent to pump gas!
(not a troll, just long time reader first time poster! be kind!)
My best guess for how things pan out:
- HC/DL? - Hoke
- OC - Borges (from SDSU)
- DC- ???, Depends on what Hoke does, he could either do DL or DC
- QB- ???, No idea, Loeffler maybe?
- WR- Jeff Hecklinski (SDSU) moves back since this would make more sense for a former QB
- RB - Fred Jackson is kept
- OL- Darrell Funk (from SDSU)
- LB- Mark Smith
- DB - Jon Hoke?
I'm assuming that they keep Fred Jackson because I'm guessing Hecklinski only coached the RBs because SDSU had their own Fred Jackson in WR Coach LeCharls McDaniel. http://goaztecs.cstv.com/sports/m-footbl/bio-McDaniel-LeCharls.html
I'm not a genius but the looks of this coaching staff is not very impressive.
to UM. Hoping they find a job of Jackson.
would be a terrible thing to cut those FL ties.
No way he is gone. He might not be RBs coach, but no way he is gone. If he isn't a coach, it's probably because he didn't want to be but I am sure he will be working with the football program/AD in some way or another. Hart, Perry, Terrell, Thomas...the list goes on with what that guy has done..
Fred Jackson could also reprise his old role of being a WR coach/ recruiting guru. Would be great to have him on the new coaching staff.
Shit. He should at least be in the football office or doing something. His son plays!
I though that he would stay as RB coach for sure.
For a former coach named Moeller who would still be a great DC?
He is back for sure.
