Bobby Morrison To Retire

Michigan recruiting coordinator Bobby Morrison's most recent incoming class will be his last. The 15-year U-M assistant coach confirmed the rumors at Michigan's signing day press conference, noting that he is retiring.
U-M coach Lloyd Carr described Morrison as "a man's man, and a coaches' coach," and noted the Wolverines will miss him greatly. Carr said he will soon announce changes to the staff in the wake of Morrison's retirement.
Morrison joined Bo Schembechler's staff in 1987, and has coached outside linebackers and offensive line at Michigan. He became recruiting coordinator in 1995, and his classes have ranked in the top 10 in six of the past seven seasons, with a No. 1-rated class in 1998 and a No. 2-rated class in 2001.
Prior to coming to Michigan, Morrison coached at William & Mary, VMI, Virginia, North Carolina State, LSU and Navy.
