San Jose State fired coach Ron Caragher on Sunday and are looking for a replacement. Dan Wolken of USA Today said Michigan offensive coordinator Tim Drevno and Colorado offensive coordinator Brian Lindgren are two coaches that could be considered.

Drevno has coached Cal State Fullerton (1991-1992), Montana State (1993-1997), UNLV (1998), San Jose State (1999), Idaho (2000-2002), San Diego (2003-2006), Stanford (2007-2010), San Francisco 49ers (2011-2013), USC (2014), and Michigan (2015-present). The 47-year-old has coached as a gradate assistant, tight end coach, running back coach, offensive line coach, and has been an offensive coordinator. However, Drevno has never been a head coach.

He coached alongside Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh for all but one season since 2004. After trying one year at USC, Drevno returned to Harbaugh before the 2015 campaign.

Drevno led Michigan to 6.1 yards per play on offense during the 2016 regular season, which finished 50th in the country. Last season, the Wolverines were 60th with 5.7 yards per play.
