A familiar face will join new Michigan head coach Jim Harbaugh as the Wolverines’ new offensive coordinator.
After spending 10 years as part of Harbaugh’s staffs at the University of San Diego, Stanford and with the San Francisco 49ers, Tim Drevno is prepared to rejoin Harbaugh at Michigan.
The Detroit News‘ Sam Webb first reported that Drevno will leave the USC Trojans:

The Los Angeles Daily News‘ Scott Wolf confirmed Drevno is leaving Los Angeles for Ann Arbor to take over Harbaugh’s offense with one caveat:

Drevno previously served as Harbaugh’s offensive coordinator with the San Diego Toreros. He became Stanford’s tight ends coach when the duo made the leap to FBS level. Drevno then became the 49ers’ offensive line coach before leaving for USC this year.
Webb also mentioned Morton. While the coach’s status remains unclear, Morton did serve as Harbaugh’s wide receivers coach with the 49ers.
