To fill the vacant coaching spot DL or OLB's ... Also read somewhere that Kevin Koger is going to come back as a Grad assistant next season
I really hope Koger comes back. One of the things we're missing on this team is veteran leadership at the TE position, so having an experienced Michigan TE available will only help the development of the young guys.
I don't think he's ready for that kind of position.
I think roy is set on the offensive side of the ball . he was a offensive assistant at UM ( helped with the OL ) and he has been a rb's coach at Cincy and now Northern ILL . Not sure how he fits the vacant job
Manning's name was thrown out there as a possibility by Sam Webb yesterday on WTKA. He's a former linebacker and is capable of coaching that SAMs on the roster. The new coach must have the type of outgoing personality that would make him a top notch recruiter and according to Webb, Manning has that.
Just because he was a former LB doesn't mean he is the right choice to coach the position he has been coaching offense most of his coaching career and seems like he likes that side of the ball
As of right now, I think they're in the process of developing a list of candidates they'll pursue. I don't have any specific names as of yet and won't speculate on them until I hear otherwise.
I expect they'll try to get someone who may have been connected to the program in the past though. The candidate will almost certainly be young as well.
So this begs the question .... what about Steve Morrison?

He's technically already back if I remember correctly as a GA...
I continue to hear Roy Manning's name as a strong candidate to join Brady Hoke's staff at Michigan.
I think Manning would be a great fit.
was hoping for more coaching experience but I think he would fit what this staff is looking for. Not only that I could see him sticking around which has to be attractive to the coaches.
How is he as a recruiter?
"Those Who Stay...Will be Champions"
I'm looking that up as we speak; he didn't have a coach page on 247 so it will take a little digging.
I'll place importance more on recruiting ability then actual coaching. Just my
According to Sam Webb, Manning would be an outstanding recruiter at Michigan, and that is what Hoke is looking for.
I didn't find him listed as the primary for any of the commits Cincinnati had in 2013, which would have been the only cycle he was involved in. I don't really think that means anything though; he was there for one year.
He was pretty big in getting Pipkins.
Did JonHoke get retained in Chicago? Would they go that route?
