Cleveland Browns assistant coach Pep Hamilton will join Jim Harbaugh’s staff at Michigan as assistant head coach and passing coordinator, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported Monday.
Schefter’s report comes a day after NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport reported that Harbaugh had begun telling recruits that Hamilton was coming onboard and two days after Rapoport reported that Hamilton was considering joining the Wolverines.
Former Browns Asst HC Pep Hamilton had accepted an offer to become Michigan's Asst HC/passing coordinator, per school source.

Hamilton has held a number of high-profile coaching jobs, most recently as offensive coordinator for the Indianapolis Colts and as assistant head coach for the Cleveland Browns. He served as wide receivers coach under Harbaugh at Stanford in 2010 before being promoted to offensive coordinator when David Shaw took over for Harbaugh the following year.
Hamilton will likely assume the duties of ex-quarterbacks coach Jedd Fisch, who was announced earlier this week as UCLA’s offensive coordinator.
