Former Michigan QB gets a coaching promotion at Western Kentucky

Nick Sheridan

As part of finalizing his coaching staff, Western Kentucky coach Willie Taggart has promoted graduate assistant Nick Sheridan to quarterback coach and passing game coordinator.

Sheridan was the opening-game starter for Michigan in 2008 against Utah in Rich Rodriguez‘s first season with the Wolverines. Sheridan made four starts that season before eventually falling down the depth chart behind Tate Forcier and Denard Robinson. In 2010, Sheridan decided to forgo his final year of eligibility and get started in a coaching career.

Sheridan’s father, Bill, has been a coach of over 30 years. Ironcially, the elder Sheridan recently took a job under Urban Meyer at Ohio State. 

Sheridan fills the vacancy left by wide receivers coach/offensive coordinator Zach Azzanni, who joined the coaching staff at Wisconsin.

    Nick Sheridan hardly qualifies as a “Former Michigan QB.”

    Having attended a game at the Big House, I’m almost as much of a “Former Michigan QB” as Nick Sheridan is.

    But good for him. “Those who can’t…teach.”

    Those who can’t teach make fun of young athletes on line for having more career options at 23 than the one mocking them, probably not in their low 20s either.

    And those who really really really cant play D1 at all…sit online and criticize real athletes who would likely kick their arse and steal their girlfriend when in college…

    I just love how many people comment on these articles, probably with a bag of Doritos sitting next to them, with their “glory” years wellllllll behind them.
