The University of Michigan hired defensive coordinator Mike Macdonald off of the Ravens staff last month and Jim Harbaugh has gone back to his brother’s pool of assistants to fill another hole on his staff.

Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that Ravens running backs coach Matt Weiss is heading to Ann Arbor. Weiss will be the quarterbacks coach for the Wolverines.

Weiss previously worked with Jim Harbaugh as a graduate assistant with Stanford. He jumped to John Harbaugh’s staff in Baltimore in 2009 and worked on both sides of the ball before spending the last two seasons as the running backs coach.

The Ravens have seen a lot of turnover on the staff this offseason. Wide receivers coach/assistant head coach David Culley is now the Texans head coach, defensive line coach Joe Cullen is the Jaguars defensive coordinator, and defensive backs coach Jesse Minter joined Macdonald in leaving for a college coordinator position. Cornerback Marlon Humphrey referenced that turnover in a Twitter reply to Rapoport saying the team’s first practice will be a “meet and greet.”

  1. Interesting in that it was just reported last week that Harbaugh was taking over qb coaching duties

  2. Because Harbaugh the “qb guru” who’s never developed a qb at Michigan definitely needs some help

  3. Who is he gonna coach? Didnt the starters all leave again? He should have jumped back into the NFL years ago. Gonna be unwanted soon. Maybe his bro will give him a quality control spot when he embarrasses Michigan again this year being unprepared.

  4. Matt Weiss and Mike Macdonald are two bright, smart ascending young coaches. They will help Michigan tremendously and will be sought after as Head coaches very soon.
