Wolverines announce coaching responsibility changes

University of Michigan head football coach Brady Hoke announced today (Thursday, February 20) the following coaching responsibilities for the defensive staff in 2014:

Greg Mattison - Defensive Coordinator/Linebackers

Curt Mallory - Safeties

Roy Manning - Cornerbacks

Mark Smith - Defensive Line

Additionally, graduate assistants Jerry Milling and Ernie Lawson will work with the linebackers and defensive line, respectively.

"Everyone on the staff and the kids are really excited about these changes," Hoke said. "Greg and I met and felt this was the best for everyone, including him and his ability to coach a position group and run a defense from the middle. When you look at Mark's experience on the defensive line, then being able to split the secondary, where you have five positions and 20-plus guys, and with the way offense and passing has changed in college football, I think it balances our staff on that side of the ball."

Offensive staff responsibilities will remain the same with the addition of offensive coordinator Doug Nussmeier.

Doug Nussmeier - Offensive Coordinator/Quarterbacks

Dan Ferrigno - Special Teams Coordinator/Tight Ends

Darrell Funk - Offensive Line

Jeff Hecklinski - Wide Receivers

Fred Jackson - Running Backs

Graduate assistant Kevin Koger will continue to work with the tight ends, while new offensive graduate assistant Michael Switzer will assist with the offensive line.
