Chris Partridge is returning to Michigan football after receiving offers from Alabama and other schools, according to multiple reports.
The Wolverines’ linebackers coach signed a new contract to remain with the program, ESPN’s Tom VanHaaren and TheWolverine’s Steve Lorenz reported Sunday. VanHaaren reported Friday that Partridge was turning down the Alabama job but that other offers “could be on the table.”
Michigan has already experienced some staff turnover this offseason, but Partridge was an ace recruiter and coach at a position of strength for the program.
Michigan has already officially added offensive assistant Dan Enos, defensive assistant Al Washington and new strength coach Ben Herbert to its staff. The Wolverines are also reportedly bringing in Central Michigan assistant Sherrone Moore. Tight ends coach/tackles coach/run game coordinator Greg Frey left for Florida State, and passing game coordinator Pep Hamilton has been linked to the Raiders and Jon Gruden.
