Many teams are interested in the services of Michigan's talented recruiter and linebacker coach.

The success that Chris Partridge has had on the recruiting trail — as well as developing the linebacking corp — at Michigan is what has made him one of the hottest commodities during this coaching carousel. And with a contract that expired this past Sunday, many schools have already begun their pursuit.

The current reigning champion Alabama Crimson Tide are one of the schools who have reached out to Partridge in hopes of landing the talented assistant's services. But as reported by Tom VanHaaren of ESPN, it seems as though Chris Partridge has turned down the tide.

While it is unclear where Michigan stands with Partridge at the moment, it certainly doesn't hurt their chances of retaining him.

Partridge joined Jim Harbaugh’s staff in 2015 as the director of player personnel before being elevated to linebackers and special teams coach, a role in which he has served in the last two seasons. He is also seen as one of the best recruiters of high school talent in the country.

This is a developing story.
