Michael Johnson to take Oregon WR job per Sam Webb

Submitted by WorldwideTJRob on February 17th, 2017 at 8:57 AM

Sam just reported on WTKA that Michael Johnson won't be the 10th position coach at Michigan after all. Instead he will be the WR coach at Oregon, so Pete can go bother Taggert for hiring Johnson so his son can play in his system.

Doubtful. They probably discussed that he'd take the new coaching job at UM if they agreed upon adding that 10th one. They pushed that (voting) to next year so Johnson went with his plan B. He was over qualified to be an analyst. Maybe they'll revisit next year.


I doubt JH is worried about making Pete look dumb. He's does a pretty good job of that himself.

Just read about it.  It does make some sense to add the assistant coach on the first day of the official off-season rather than in mid-april.  Some of the reasons given include easier budgeting and a better place in the coach hiring cycle.  However, it's sort of b.s. that this change is being considered right now, when at least some schools were making hires based on that expected additional assistant coaching position.

Pete will say nothing about how unethical Oregon is. All he cares about is Harbaugh and MI. He is just the worst kind of troll. Wine on about Harbaugh looking into quality staff members but yet say nothing about all the corrupt BS, not to mention awful legal situations going on in the SEC....just pathetic.

These things work themselves out. I would put the chances of McCafferey only starting the 2021 very low. If he does not beat out Peters or Speight at any time in his career I would assume he will transfer, which would be entirely understandable. If you're going to recruit a good QB every year some are not going to pan out (at least with your program).
