It looks like the Wolverines are going to be adding more NFL coaching experience to the coaching staff.
According to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, Jim Harbaugh has been telling recruits that Cleveland Browns associate head coach Pep Hamilton is joining Michigan.

This latest bit of news coincides with what we heard on Saturday, and isn’t a huge surprise given the history between Harbaugh and Hamilton.
Hamilton previously served as a wide receivers coach with Harbaugh when the two were at Stanford in 2010, before going on to serve as Stanford’s offensive coordinator (under David Shaw), Indianapolis Colts offensive coordinator and Browns associate head coach last year.
During that 2010 season at Stanford, the Cardinal football team ranked No. 29 in passing offense with 258 yards per game and third in passing efficiency.
While an exact role has yet to be announced or reported, the Wolverines do have a quarterbacks coach opening, and Hamilton has served in that capacity at four previous stops in his coaching career.
