The head coach of the University of Michigan football announced the name of the new offensive coordinator and assistant offensive coach.
Josh Gattis, 34, who served as a wide receivers coach at Western Michigan University in 2011, was named the Sanford Robertson Offensive Coordinator and assistant offensive coach Thursday for the Wolverines.
“It is an honor and a privilege to join the University of Michigan football family under Coach Harbaugh, one of the most successful head coaches in all of football,” Gattis said in a release. “I am deeply humbled by the opportunity to serve as your Offensive Coordinator. This is the leadership challenge I’ve coveted. The football tradition at the University of Michigan is among the very best in college athletics. My family and I couldn’t be more excited to arrive in Ann Arbor.”
