Michigan football coach Jim Harbaugh announced on Thursday that Ed Warinner has been elevated to the role of offensive line coach for the 2018 college football season.
The promotion comes as no surprise, as Warinner is taking the spot vacated by Tim Drevno, who recently joined USC as running backs coach. Warinner was hired by Michigan in January as a senior analyst with the offense.

Last season, Warinner served as the offensive line coach and as the running game coordinator at Minnesota. Prior to that, he coached at Ohio State from 2012-16, where he was offensive coordinator, offensive line coach and tight ends coach. In addition, he coached Notre Dame’s offensive line from 2010-11, also serving as the team’s run game coordinator.
In his 30-plus years of coaching, Warinner also has coached at Kansas, Illinois, Air Force, Army, Michigan State and Akron, the latter being his first coaching job in 1984.
With Warinner’s experience, Michigan hopes that he can help improve its offense, which struggled with consistency last season.
