Jim Harbaugh should hand Jim McElwain the offensive keys

Land of 10’s Sean Keeler makes the case that newly hired assistant coach Jim McElwain should call offensive plays without Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh’s input. As Keeler points out, during McElwain’s first year as Alabama’s offensive coordinator in 2008, the Crimson Tide averaged 30 points per game, making it the first Alabama team to do so since 1983.

Only Jim Harbaugh should call offensive plays

Land of 10’s Chris Howard disagrees with Keeler: Howard thinks Harbaugh should call plays by himself. Howard thinks the collaborative play calling the Wolverines used in 2017 was ineffective and failed to produce a consistent offensive identity.
