Michigan football has clear-cut choice for offensive coordinator

On Friday, Michigan football fired co-offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach Matt Weiss amidst a U-M police investigation into a computer access crime.

Now, the Wolverines will need to settle their offensive coordinator situation before the start of 2023 — this hire will be pivotal for Michigan’s upcoming season. Michigan has a clear-cut option for offensive coordinator in 2023.

Michigan football will have a scary good offense

In 2022 — Michigan’s 13-1 Big Ten Championship season — the Wolverines’ offense ranked 6th in total offense and scoring offense. Michigan football looks to keep that success going, perhaps even improving its offense in 2023, as U-M returns loads of talent.

Heading into the 2023 season, Michigan football retains its starting quarterback, its elite running back duo, much of its Joe Moore Award-winning offensive line, two talented tight ends, and two of its top-3 receivers.

With rising junior JJ McCarthy back under center, Blake Corum and Donovan Edwards in the backfield, and more, this year’s Michigan offense could be the best that we have ever seen under Jim Harbaugh; perhaps even of all-time.

Sherrone Moore should be offensive coordinator

That being said, Michigan football should look no further than the other half of its co-offensive coordinator duo in 2022. Sherrone Moore has been a massive part of Michigan’s culture changes from 2020 to 2021 — changes that allowed U-M to grow into the powerhouse that it is today.

Moore has also been a solid play caller throughout the 2022 season and has done a great job with the offensive line during his time in Ann Arbor. Michigan football will need to find itself a new passing game coordinator and quarterbacks coach, but when it comes to a single offensive play-caller, Sherrone Moore is the clear-cut answer.
