Alabama wide receivers coach Josh Gattis taking over as MI offensive coordinator

Josh Gattis spent four seasons at Penn State before he was at Alabama in 2018. More

MI has reportedly found its offensive coordinator.

Alabama wide receivers coach and co-offensive coordinator Josh Gattis will be the new offensive coordinator at MI, according to a report from The Athletic.

Head coach Jim Harbaugh celebrates a first half score with Shea Patterson #2 while playing the Nebraska Cornhuskers on September 22, 2018 at Michigan Stadium in Ann Arbor, Michigan.

Gattis' move to MI comes after reports that he could be heading to Maryland to be the offensive coordinator under Mike Locksley.

It bears mention that Locksley, not Gattis, held that role at Alabama.

Alabama, like MI, was long known for a run-heavy offense but recently evolved to a more modern approach with quarterbacks Jalen Hurts and Tua Tagovailoa.

"The offense and passing games under Josh's direction have achieved at a very high level throughout his coaching career", Jim Harbaugh said. McElwain is now the head coach at Central Michigan. That offense was hit-or-miss this season at times, and struggled against big-time competition. And that's not counting Steve Sarkisian, who was the Tide's offensive coordinator for the 2017 national championship game before moving to be the offensive coordinator for the Atlanta Falcons.

It is unclear where Gattis will fit in, in relation to Hamilton, who is also assistant head coach, under Harbaugh. Brian Daboll was the team's offensive coordinator in 2017 and he's now the OC for the Buffalo Bills. With Gattis on staff, the Crimson Tide posted the best offensive season in program history 522 yards per game and 45.6 points per game. Brady Hoke hired Doug Nussmeier to be the team's coordinator and Nussmeier lasted just one season before Hoke was sacked and Harbaugh was hired to take over the program.

The Wolverines finished sixth in the Big Ten in total offense with 419.5 yards per game, seventh in yards per play (6.09) and ninth in passing offense (215.7 yards per game).

Harbaugh's staff has undergone some significant changes this offseason after he said following Michigan's loss to Florida in the Peach Bowl that he expected very few.
