Alabama co-offensive coordinator Josh Gattis to be Michigan's offensive coordinator

Kb4o2t0jrxtrc8e8gp8x

Gattis was only at Alabama for a season and has significant familiarity with the Big Ten and the Big Ten East.

Gattis' move to MI comes after reports that he could be heading to Maryland to be the offensive coordinator under Mike Locksley.

On Thursday morning it was reported that Alabama assistant coach Josh Gattis was leaving Tuscaloosa to become offensive coordinator at Maryland. "I am deeply humbled by the opportunity to serve as your Offensive Coordinator".

"The offense and passing games under Josh's direction have achieved at a very high level throughout his coaching career", Harbaugh said.

In Tuscaloosa this past season, Gattis was the club's co-offensive coordinator/wide receivers coach, and helped mentor one of the top receiving crews in college football, led by Biletnikoff Award victor Jerry Jeudy (68 catches, 1,315 yards, 14 touchdowns). "This is the leadership challenge I've coveted". Gattis spent one season with the Crimson Tide after spending four seasons on James Franklin's staff at Penn State.

Gattis will inherit a number of offensive weapons at MI, including quarterback Shea Patterson and wide receivers Donovan Peoples-Jones, Tarik Black and Nico Collins.

Sarkisian replaced Lane Kiffin, who took the head coaching job at Florida Atlantic after the 2016 season. However, as the Wolverines offense got better from 2017 to 2018 - but didn't put all of the elite playmakers in the best positions to succeed - it looks like head coach Jim Harbaugh chose to swing for the fences.

Gattis was a fifth-round pick in the 2007 NFL Draft by the Jacksonville Jaguars. McElwain is now the head coach at Central Michigan.

Harbaugh has led MI to three 10-win seasons in four years in Ann Arbor, but hasn't yet gotten over the hump against Ohio State. In addition to the hire of Gattis, defensive line coach Greg Mattison and defensive assistant Al Washington both departed for Ohio State earlier this week. With Shea Patterson back for his senior season in 2019, that ratio could be different next season.

Alabama, like MI, was long known for a run-heavy offense but recently evolved to a more modern approach with quarterbacks Jalen Hurts and Tua Tagovailoa. Locksley was hired in December as Maryland's new head coach.
