Update: Offensive Coaching Staff Overhaul

Submitted by MichiganSports3 on January 3rd, 2018 at 12:04 AM

Reading more and more that Dan Enos and Greg Roman will likely be the newest additions to the Michigan coaching staff, replacing Drevno, Pep, and Frey (all of which rumored to have accepted jobs elsewhere). This basically confirms what our "insider" MGoBlog accounts have been posting throughout the day with regards to the coaching changes. In bringing in Greg Roman, it appears that Harbaugh is planning on switching to the pistol offense that he ran with Colin Kaepernick in SF. He's got the QB's for it in Patterson, McCaffrey, and Milton, as well as athletic WR's in DPJ, Black, and Collins. Let's hope it revitalizes the offense for next season.

Note* Nothing is confirmed but I highly doubt that every UM Insider who's been tracking these moves is wrong

As long as the Ford family owns them. They are uninterested in fielding a consistently competitive team, getting to the playoffs, or winning playoff games on a regular basis.  

 

Not so with Michigan. Excellence is expected, no, DEMANDED, and the program history reflects that, mostly. If they're not winning, something is WRONG, and the institution tries to fix the problem.  

Not so the Lions.  As long as the fans keep showing up for home games, and the TV revenues keep rolling in, the Fords don't give a shit.

Kaz is short for my home town, Kalamazoo.  But this is exactly why while I stayed a Detroit team in other sports, I switched to the Redskins in 1981.   No one in my family ever asked me why I didn't stay a Lions fan, LOL.  They knew.

Note the Redskins have sucked the last 25 years and I haven't blinked.  I'm a loyal fan.  But the price of my fandom is you have to WANT to win.

The Fords never did.  Every time we started to get good, it was salary dump time

Lots of churn before NYE. Keep an open mind on the additions and subtractions. Enos and Al Washington are two names to watch. I know we have been in contact with Roman too.

Relatively significant changes are coming. Could be as little as 1 retained on offense and 3 on defense. Waiting to see how it all shakes out.
