Pep Hamilton gets new job title in Michigan athletic department directory

Did Pep Hamilton get a promotion?

Dan Enos coached wide receivers at the University of Michigan for what seemed like 15 minutes. Then he up and went to the University of Alabama to coach quarterbacks, forcing head coach Jim Harbaugh to find someone else to replace Enos.

There has not been an official new hiring since Enos left on Jan. 25, but Harbaugh may have hired someone already on the staff for that same position.

Pep Hamilton is now listed as “Assistant Head Coach/Passing Game Coordinator/Quarterbacks and Wide Receivers Coach” in the Michigan athletic department’s directory.

However, Hamilton’s MGoBlue bio still states he is only the assistant head coach and passing game coordinator. I would take his MGoBlue bio job title lightly as of right now, as the athletic department’s staff directory has consistently updated information, including all the new coaches Michigan has hired over the past month.

The Wolverines did not have an official quarterbacks or wide receivers coach in 2017. Hamilton was in charge of the passing game, as his original title indicates, but was not officially the coach of the quarterback position.

Hamilton was hired to be the assistant head coach and passing game coordinator last year on Jan. 12, and that is exactly what he did for Michigan in 2017. But now it appears he may be in for a bigger role with the Wolverines in 2018 with his brand new title being in the staff directory.

For now, we will just have to wait for an official announcement, but it appears Michigan may have found its next wide receivers and quarterbacks coach.
