So @TomLoy247 tells me Dan Ferrigno will not return as Michigan's tight end coach.

Vince Marrow, come on up.

He was also the special teams coordinator. Wonder if HARBAUGH will hire someone for that. Hopefully, because the special teams have been lacking for quite some time here in terms of return game threats. Lord knows we have the speed to run them back. 

Michigan's hasn't returned a punt for a TD since Odoms did at Purdue in 2008. Haven't returned a kickoff for a TD since Stonum vs ND in 2009. Michigan has only returned a kickoff for a TD twice in the 21st century.

edit: Vince Marrow has been offered.

Harbaugh has a tendency toward co-coordinators, he had both co-OCs and co-DCs at Stanford. And more broadly, both Ohio State and Michigan State presently have 4 coordinators.

Mainly, I think most agree Mattison has done nothing to merit a demotion and the idea of paying $1.5M for a DL coach (Hoke jokes aside) rubs many the wrong way.

I would assume when a coach can't turn a guy into a competent blocker so they move him to full time WR, that coach isn't going to make it through a change.
