Pretty interesting article on how an unrelated phone call led Mike Zordich to head to Ann Arbor.
Two weeks ago, as the Baltimore Ravens were preparing for their wild-card playoff game against the Steelers, Youngstown State safeties coach Mike Zordich called Ravens coach John Harbaugh to wish him good luck.
“John and I are good friends and we communicate quite a bit,” said Zordich, a Chaney High graduate. “John was my special teams coach in Philadelphia [in 1998, his last year in the NFL] and we’ve kept in contact.”
The call ended up changing his life.
At the time, John’s brother, Jim, had just been hired at Michigan and was in the early stages of assembling a staff. Zordich had just finished his first year at YSU and wasn’t looking to move on, but John mentioned Zordich’s name to Jim. Next thing Zordich knew, he got a call from Jim asking him to drive to Ann Arbor for an interview.
