Late Thursday night, a report came out that Michigan football will hire Central Michigan’s Sherrone Moore as its tight ends coach.
Moore would replace former tight ends coach/offensive tackles coach/run game coordinator Greg Frey, who left for Florida State earlier in January.
The Wolverine Lounge’s Tanner Wooten had it first.

Moore spent four years with the Chippewas and was named assistant head coach and recruiting coordinator in 2017.
Before that, he spent five seasons at Louisville, three as a graduate assistant and two as a tight ends coach.
After two years at community college, Moore played Division I football at Oklahoma and was an offensive lineman, playing in 14 games at guard.
He’ll inherit tight ends in rising junior Sean McKeon and rising senior Zach Gentry. McKeon was the team’s leading receiver with 31 catches and also had 301 yards and 3 touchdowns. Gentry was fourth with 17 catches for 303 yards and 2 scores.
Nick Baumgardner of the Detroit Free Press then found out that Moore is already in Michigan’s official directory, making it seemingly a done deal.
CMU TE coach Sherrone Moore is in Michigan's official directory.
So that seems like a done deal.
