Al Borges released as Michigan's OC

Michigan offensive coordinator Al Borges will not be retained for the 2014 season, according to a release by the Michigan athletic department.

"Decisions like these are never easy," Michigan coach Brady Hoke said in a statement. "I have a great amount of respect for Al as a football coach and, more importantly, as a person. I appreciate everything he has done for Michigan Football for the past three seasons."

Borges, who originally joined Hoke's staff at San Diego State 2009-10, spent three years in Ann Arbor, guiding the Michigan offense to an 11-2, Sugar Bowl season in 2011.

But the offense experienced diminishing returns in the last three seasons. This year, the offense struggled mightily to move the ball on the ground, setting a single-game program low with negative-48 rushing yards in a 29-6 loss at Michigan State.

In 2013, Michigan ranked 46th nationally in scoring offense (32.2 points per game), 103rd nationally in rushing offense (125.7 rushing yards per game), 51st nationally in passing offense (247.8 passing yards per game) and 87th nationally in total offense (373.5 yards per game).

The Wolverines' problems on offense led to a 7-6 season, including losses in six of their last eight games.
