Could Michigan be in for more coaching changes?
Sam Webb of TheMichiganInsider.com reports that Indiana OL coach/assistant head coach Grey Frey is in Ann Arbor, Mich., and interviewing with the Wolverines. However, Tim Drevno is currently Michigan’s offensive line coach. But the Wolverines did lose RB coach Tyrone Wheatley to the NFL’s Jacksonville Jaguars last week. The NCAA is also likely to approve a 10th full-time coach this spring.
Frey has coached with the Wolverines before, coaching the offensive line from 2008-2010. In 2010, he helped the program lead the Big Ten with 488.7 yards per game.
Just a few weeks ago, Drevno agreed to a 5-year deal with the Wolverines at more than $1 million annually. Drevno had been mentioned for the Western Michigan job before the Broncos picked Tim Lester. Drevno has been a longtime Jim Harbaugh assistant, coaching with Harbaugh at San Diego, Stanford, the San Francisco 49ers and now at Michigan.

Frey is also a 2015 Broyles Award nominee. He just completed his sixth season as the Hoosiers’ offensive line coach.
In 2015, Indiana OL Dan Feeney and Jason Spriggs both picked up All-America honors. Spriggs was picked in the second round by the Green Bay Packers in the 2016 NFL Draft. Feeney is projected to go in the first or second round for the 2017 draft.
