Michigan QB coach, WR coach and passing game coordinator Jedd Fisch is headed to UCLA to become the Bruins offensive coordinator, according to Bruce Feldman of Fox Sports.
Fisch just finished his second season at Michigan. Before that, he was the Jacksonville Jaguars offensive coordinator (2013-14) and OC at the University of Miami (2011-2012). He had no ties to Jim Harbaugh or Michigan before taking the job.

Fisch helped develop Jake Rudock and Wilton Speight in his two years with the Wolverines. In 2015, Michigan’s offense eclipsed 3,000 passing yards for the sixth time in program history and Rudock landed with the NFL’s Detroit Lions. This season, Speight threw for 2,538 yards, 18 touchdowns and 7 INTs in his first year as a starter.
The Wolverines offense averaged 40.3 points per game in 2016, the second most in school history. That ranked first in the Big Ten and their passing offense ranked second.
UCLA now has its third offensive coordinator in the last three years. Fisch inherits Josh Rosen, a rising junior with a ton of talent whose sophomore season was marred by a shoulder injury.
