ANN ARBOR -- After much speculation, the new coordinator positions on Jim Harbaugh's staff at Michigan have been formally announced.

Michigan announced on Friday that USC running game coordinator and offensive line coach, Tim Drevno, has been formally introduced as offensive coordinator for the Wolverines.

In addition, Drevno will also handle offensive line responsibilities as well.

"I am excited to reunite with Tim and have him serve as the offensive coordinator for our Michigan program," said Michigan football coach Jim Harbaugh in a statement. "Tim is an outstanding offensive line coach and is a technician that works very hard at making his student-athletes better players and students. He will be an outstanding member of our coaching staff."

Like defensive coordinator D.J. Durkin, Drevno and Harbaugh have previous coaching familiarity. Spending 11 years coaching together with stops at San Francisco, Stanford and San Diego.

The history between the two made it an easy decision for Drevno to reunite with Harbaugh.

"I am excited to join the University of Michigan and work with Coach Harbaugh again," Drevno said in a statement. "We have a long history together, and I have great respect for what he has accomplished as a coach. I am excited to be in Ann Arbor and can't wait to get to work with the players and staff to build on this program's great tradition."
