Michigan Hires Alabama's Josh Gattis As Its Offensive Coordinator

Josh Gattis spent four seasons at Penn State before he was at Alabama in 2018. More

MI has hired former Alabama co-offensive coordinator Josh Gattis as its new offensive coordinator.

Head coach Jim Harbaugh celebrates a first half score with Shea Patterson #2 while playing the Nebraska Cornhuskers on September 22, 2018 at Michigan Stadium in Ann Arbor, Michigan. Gattis and Locksley shared offensive coordinator duties with the Crimson Tide in 2018. "This is the leadership challenge I've coveted".

Gattis, 34, also served as wide receivers coach for the Crimson Tide, the same position he held at Penn State (2014-17), Vanderbilt (2012-13) and Western Michigan (2011).

"The offense and passing games under Josh's direction have achieved at a very high level throughout his coaching career", Jim Harbaugh said. "My family and I couldn't be more excited to arrive in Ann Arbor". Jerry Jeudy caught 68 passes for 1,315 yards, 14 touchdowns and won the Biletnikoff Award given to the nation's top wide receiver. McElwain is now the head coach at Central Michigan. According to The Athletic, Gattis will take over play-calling.

China-US trade talks have laid foundation for a deal, ministry says
McKinney's sentiment echoed that of President Donald Trump , who tweeted early Tuesday that the talks "are going very well! ". Last year, the U.S. imposed tariff hikes of up to 25 per cent on Dollars 250 billion of Chinese goods.

Gattis was a fifth-round pick in the 2007 NFL Draft by the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Michigan's offense has been criticized over the last couple of months due to blowout losses at Ohio State and against Florida in the Peach Bowl. 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. They haven't finished better than No. 50 in total offense in any of Harbaugh's four seasons. MI did lose two assistants in this past week, with former defensive line coach Greg Mattison and linebackers coach Al Washington both joining Ryan Day's new staff at Ohio State.

Michigan's offense didn't have an official coordinator in 2018.

Multiple reports on Thursday had Gattis heading to Maryland to reunite with new head coach Mike Locksley, who coordinated Alabama's offense alongside.
