UCLA makes it official: Michigan QB coach Jedd Fisch is its new offensive coordinator.
The Bruins announced the hire a couple of days after Fisch was reported to be going to Los Angeles. Fisch, who’s 40 years old, was at Michigan for two seasons.
Michigan head coach Jim Harbaugh had major praise for Fisch.
“Jedd Fisch is a talented offensive mind who groomed a new starting quarterback for us each year that he was at Michigan,” Harbaugh said in a UCLA release. “The UCLA coaching staff will be receiving someone who possesses a wealth of knowledge, great enthusiasm and a positive attitude. Jedd’s reputation as a relentless coast-to-coast recruiter will unquestionably benefit the Bruins going forward. I wish Jedd, Amber and the Fisch family nothing but success and prosperity in the Pac-12 as part of the UCLA Bruins Football coaching staff.”
This past season, Michigan averaged 40.3 points per game, including 212 passing yards per game. QB Wilton Speight passed for 2,538 yards with 18 TDs and 7 INTs.
