Rumor Mill: Brian Smith (M DB coach) may be leaving

Take it for what little its worth but there is noise on some message boards that Michigan is losing defensive backs coach Brian Smith. Word is he's been offered a defensive coordinator position at Rice.

Seems like there's almost too many available coaching slots to not have separate CB and S coaches. Think about it, we have position coaches for: QB, RB, WR, OT/TE, OG/C, DL, LB, CB, S, and will soon get a tenth full time coaching slot. Which position could possibly need another coach? I suppose we could make someone ST full-time, but I think it's worth while having CB and S coached separately, DB play under Harbaugh has been very solid.
