Jim Harbaugh’s Michigan Wolverines are heading into a season full of massive expectations. The Wolverines have come close to claiming the program’s first national title in nearly three decades for several years now, and 2023 appears to be their perfect chance. One of the biggest factors in the Wolverines’ newfound success on the football field is their running back room, led by Michigan football RB coach Mike Hart and star back Blake Corum.
Blake Corum and Michigan football RB coach Mike Hart pursuing greatness in 2023
Last fall, Michigan football’s RB coach Mike Hart surpassed expectations with the Wolverines’ impressive running back room. The Maize and Blue boast two of the nation’s best backs in senior Blake Corum and junior Donovan Edwards, both expected to be top-ranked draft picks in the 2024 NFL Draft.
Leading up to Michigan’s 2023 campaign, Blake Corum highlighted the significance of Mike Hart for Michigan football. It is evident to fans and national media alike that Hart and Corum share a special bond, which contributes to the formidable rushing attack of the Maize and Blue.
“I would honestly do anything for coach Hart. That’s how much he means to me,” Corum said this spring, according to ON3. “Whether that means running through a wall or taking a bullet … coach Hart is my guy, and I’m going to go put it all on the line for him.”
Is Hart the best RB coach in the country?
Michigan football boasts the best running game in the nation, largely thanks to Mike Hart’s elite coaching. According to Blake Corum, there is no doubt that Hart is the top RB coach in the country.
“He’s the best running backs coach in the nation. I believe he deserves way more recognition than he gets, because he’s more than a running backs coach. He could be an offensive coordinator, or he could be a head coach. He’s a very knowledgeable guy. I’m just blessed to have him.”
Michigan’s RB room is more than a team, it’s a family
Michigan football is not just a program; it’s a family. This is the culture that Jim Harbaugh has cultivated within his team, and it is a central message that resonates throughout the entire program. According to Blake Corum, RB coach Mike Hart is more than just a coach; he holds a significant role that goes beyond coaching duties.
“Coach Hart and I we have a great relationship. I know I can count on him for anything. He has a great family, and I love being around them.”
This fall, Michigan football will strive to win its third consecutive conference title and beyond. The team’s success will be driven by the dedication and hard work of key contributors such as Blake Corum, Mike Hart, Donovan Edwards, and many others.
