Last week, Michigan football fired its former co-offensive coordinator and passing game coordinator, Matt Weiss, amidst a police investigation into computer access crimes that occurred in late December of last year. The Wolverines must now find a new passing game coordinator to allow rising junior JJ McCarthy to thrive in 2023.
Here are two names that Michigan football could pursue to fill its passing game coordinator vacancy.
Tee Martin, the current wide receivers coach for John Harbaugh’s Baltimore Ravens, is one of two hot names on the market. Martin’s playing career extends back to his time with the Tennessee Volunteers from 1996-1999. Martin was the Vols’ starter during his junior and senior seasons from 1998-99 — he led Tennessee to a perfect season and its most recent National Championship in 1998.
Tee Martin was drafted by Pittsburgh in 2000 and was released from the NFL in 2004.
As a coach, Martin has a great deal of college and NFL experience as a QB coach, a receivers coach, and more. Throughout his coaching career, Martin has seen action with New Mexico, USC, and his alma mater, the University of Tennessee. Martin just finished his second season as the receivers coach with the NFL’s Baltimore Ravens.
Kirk Campbell is currently an offensive analyst on Jim Harbaugh’s staff at the University of Michigan. Campbell was officially named to the Wolverines’ staff nearly a year ago today, and is one of the trending names to fill the passing game coordinator role at Michigan.
Campbell brings three seasons of experience as an analyst on James Franklin’s staff at Penn State and two seasons of experience as a QB coach/offensive coordinator at Old Dominion. He has also seen action at a handful of D2 programs.
This hire is essential for Michigan football as the Wolverines pursue a third-straight Big Ten Championship and perhaps even a National Title this fall. With a quarterback as talented as JJ McCarthy under center, Michigan must find a coach to allow McCarthy to thrive and carry Michigan to another win over Ohio State and more in 2023.
