Is Harbaugh’s Most Recent Hire Unethical?

Jim Harbaugh has done it again, he’s managed to enrage his critics and excite his fans with one simple change to his coaching staff.

Michigan has hired California High School Coach Michael Johnson to join its staff, on the surface this doesn’t appear to be that controversial a move, after all, Johnson is extremely qualified for the job.  He has worked in the NFL and in college ball, particularly with wide receivers, a position which is currently unfilled on the Michigan staff.  Here is a list of Johnson’s coaching stops, Oregon State 1997-99 (WR’s coach), San Diego Chargers 2000-2001 (QB’s coach), Atlanta Falcons 2002-05 (WR’s, WBs), Baltimore Ravens 2006-2007 (WRs), San Francisco 49’ers 2009-2010 (QBs, OC), UCLA (OC, interim HC).

Why Did Michigan Shake Up Its Offensive Coaching Staff?

I’ve now confirmed through two independent sources that the staff shake-up was definitely intentional by Michigan Head Coach Jim Harabaugh.

Sources in Ann Arbor have informed me that Jedd Fisch and Tyrone Whealtley’s departures are not unexpected and are part of the plan for Harbaugh.  While Harbaugh liked and respected both Fisch and Wheatley, sources tell me he wasn’t thrilled with the way the passing offense worked down the stretch for the Wolverines.   There was a division among the coaches (Harbaugh, Fisch, Drevno and Wheatley) as to the best way to improve the offense and Drevono’s opinion won out.  I’m told the main reason Fisch left for UCLA is he coveted more control over the play calling and that wasn’t happening with Tim Drevno firmly in place as the play-caller.
