Drevno had spent a season with the Trojans in 2014 before joining Michigan’s staff. USC had not made the announcement official as of Sunday morning.
Drevno spent the last three seasons on Jim Harbaugh’s staff as Michigan’s offensive coordinator and offensive line coach. He also spent time coaching under Harbaugh with the San Francisco 49ers, Stanford and San Diego. Drevno reportedly stepped down at Michigan Feb. 23.
Drevno’s offense struggled in 2017 after putting up big numbers the season before. Michigan ranked eighth in the Big Ten in points (25.2 per game) and ninth in yards (348.9 per game) last season. Drevno’s offense averaged 40.0 points per game in 2016.
The Wolverines have not yet named a new offensive coordinator, but Ed Warinner — who was originally hired as an offensive analyst — will take over Drevno’s role as offensive line coach.
Drevno will be joining Clay Helton’s staff at USC.
