Michigan running backs coach Tyrone Wheatley is reportedly on the move, just when it looked like Michigan was going to keep the coach and ace recruiter for another season.
Per Alex Marvez of Sporting News, Wheatley is joining the coaching staff of the Jacksonville Jaguars as running backs coach.

Wheatley will be working under a familiar face in the NFL with new Jaguars head coach Doug Marrone. The two worked together for five seasons, Wheatley coaching running backs under Marrone at Syracuse from 2010-12 then leaving with Marrone to do the same with the Buffalo Bills from 2013-14.
of note – Wheatley's contract at Michigan expired Thursday. https://t.co/HcIb4C3Lrp
