I don't think they changed Les at all actually

stupid Pistons and their refusal to tank properly
rundown of Michigan's riser
needs moar usage
so much for that
This list is completely arbitrary and not a genuine analysis of the relative merits of state fossils.
will be michigan's highest pick in a while
money has to go somewhere
I am only motivated by people who have no opinion about me.
the just released schedules were a flat-out statement that the B10 doesn't believe SOS will matter in playoff selection
but I thought that draft was supposed to be incredibly loaded?
Perhaps even Chone Crable?
Blank.....Blank......You're not looking at the big picture here.
Do change from time to time. Not sure if you know that.
Have to hire a d line coach? Can they adjust the current staff considering Hoke focus is the d line??
They absolutely must hire a D Line coach. You win!!
Isn't Borges the QB coach? I might be inadvertently making your point for you...
Call Mr. Plow, that's my name, that name again is Mr. Plow
You should check out Roy Manning's coaching bio.
Twitter - Recruiting Update: May 20
It wouldn't surprise me at all to see Manning hired. Aside from being a Michigan alum and a good coach, he is a young African American man who can likely relate to some kids in a way a that a 50 year old white guy might not be able to...just sayin
my guess would be because Sam Webb said he may be replaced with another coach but maybe not a dl coach.
What about Tyrone Wheatley?
Do you bleed blue?
well his son was just offered by Michigan,does that count?
I would take Wheatley over Hart.
I must say, I'm a little lost here. What the hell does Mike Hart know about being a DL coach?
I love the guy and would love more than anything to see him back here, but uh, as a DL coach? Not exactly what I pictured.
When the ADept sells special jerseys and gear, you'll see my picture next to the targeted customer crowd. A sheep.....but a Blue one.....
Montgomery was the DE coach, so essentially he micro managed a bit with Mattison and Hoke both also coaching the DL. The thought is that those 2 can still coach the DL and that the incoming coach can really be put anywhere Hoke sees fit. I do agree with the overall suggestion that the new coach should be a young, energetic, and eager African American though and Mike Hart certainly fits that bill.
Rabble rabble Dave Brandon rabble rabble
"Long time listener, first time caller."
We don't need him as a DL coach, we already have two, right? He would be a heck of a recruiter and eventual replacement for all-time running backs coach, Sir Fred Jackson.
While this move was not really about $$$ I feel like this would not have happens at an SEC school.
"Relax you panic monger" -Megatron
People don't leave for promotions when the path ahead of them is blocked at SEC schools. Weird....must be the only place that that doesn't happen. If he really is being offered recruiting coordinator responsibilities, it's a great resume booster and I would have been surprised to see him stay here when the path ahead is blocked.
I'm sure the staff will find another replacement and I'm sure energy and recruiting ability will be evaluated. Brandon understands what it takes to bring in good talent, so I wouldn;t worry about being out-bid.
Chaos is found in greatest abundance wherever order is being sought. It always defeats order because it is better organized.
It was about money
Look what Cam Cameron is making at LSU and tell me DB would ever pony up that kind of money for an assistant coach. The only reason we got Mattison was because he wanted to be close to his daughter and granddaughter.
Charlie strong? Young, black and coached defense! Dave brandon should give him a call.
If you don't like Michigan you are a peasant
Charlie Strong was a D Coordinator at Florida and now the head coach of a team that won a BCS game...I'm sure he wants to come here to be a position coach.
3-3-5 til the day I die y'all
I guess that will hurt us with Mone; and McDowell; and Marshall. And who knows how many othe recruits he was in on, recruits he's going to try and steer towards Oklahoma now.
Most of all, though? It's just embarassing.
Don't quote laws to us. We carry swords.
sure thats the only way to look at that scenario. It may be a positive theres an opportunity will be coached by the HC. It works for Saban he coaches the DBs if I'm not mistaken.
"Runnnn!!! get to da choppa"
But not embarrassing...when other schools come after your coaching staff it is a compliment. Look how many have been picked off Saban's tree. His program is just fine. Now if we go the way of Mack brown...not so good.
have this happen all the time. Who wouldn't jump at Coaching the new players we have brought in and the one's in the pipeline!
Your first sentence is correct, your second sentence, more arguably, as well. Notably, though, neither has anything to do with either of the things I said.
Has anyone ever thought about will happen when Fred retires? I'm wondering if Tyrone or Mike will get the running backs job. Someone will be left out and I can only imagine the blog when that happens.
"Ohio is like a giant turd that Michigan just can't pinch off"
I'm rooting for Mike Cox.
We know you are.
I hear Mike Hart is looking to coach RBs at Michigan one day.
Full-on Decatur Clan. Whatever happens, GO BLUE!
Is Glen Steele interested in coaching?
Tenim un nom el sap tothom. Barca, Barca, BAAARCA!
Now that is an idea! He his a teacher and HS football coach, I think in IN. Never know!
"Everybody thinks of changing humanity, but nobody thinks of changing himself." - Leo Tolstoy
Upvote this man.
OU's D-line play has been atrocious the past few years, so success there, both in recruiting D-linemen and in coaching them, will be ascribed to coach Montgomery.
Lets hire Dashawn Hand's hs coach.
"Michigan Defense" is dominating everything, in every aspect of life. That's a rough definition.

Sparty just beat us to it. Mark Hollis just read this post and has issued a press statement letting the world know that "we pioneered that idea, it's not exactly rocket science at this point".
not just "douchey" MGoBlog user, but now TRUSTED MGoBlog user
As noted by others here, we don't really need a defensive line specialist... So why not use the free coaching spot to hire a special teams coach? Maybe one who is at least comfortable with the idea of trying a rugby-style punt formation? But they must be fluent in The Brunette Technique.
It took me a good minute to get the reference.
Best of luck to Coach Montgomery, definitely sucks.
"The goal, the expectation of this program is the Big Ten Championship"
For the love of all things Michigan, some of you are the most childish bunch of fans on the blogosphere.
To think that he'd never want to leave Michigan because Michigan is a final destination stop is just silly talk.
The guy was given a better opportunity and you are trashing him for it.
When he's successful at Oklahomo, it will be because he learned from the greats at Michigan and he'll give credit for it to his time at Meeeechigan!
Michigan now has a great opportunity to bring someone else in.
And hopefully many of you won't treat the new coach like how many of you treated Hoke when he was named the HC.
"The street legend is back, bitches!"
LGBT peeps just snapped their fingers and twirled their wallet chains at you!! Lol!
when a lesbian got pissed at the owner for confusing her with a guy due to her butch look!
It's tough to make predictions, especially about the future. -- Yogi Berra
BUT IT"S DAVID BRANDONS FAULT!!!! He should just pay Mongomery whatever the hell he wants!!!!!! We should just pay all of our football coaches in the gazillions cause we're Michigan!!!!!!! Also, while we're at it, we should just nuke China!!!!!!!
Yes I got him a gift. He had a kidney stone. You piss a rock through your pecker, you deserve more than just a pat on the fucking back.
Well, it looks like I shouldn't be so cynical and give more credence to such rumors. I scoffed at this early in the week. I always thought he would leave, but for a co-DC or DC gig. He did well here, and we may see his name as a DC or even head coach in the near future.
Lets stop bitching and crying about him leaving and discuss who his replacement will be. I think it will be Glen Steele.
