Michigan has hired Mike Hart as their new running backs coach. The former Michigan standout and the programs all-time leading rusher is joining the staff at a time where new blood is needed, and youthful energy is welcomed.
While social media hasn’t been kind to Michigan on average this year and off-season, that changed today with the hiring of Hart, a decision that seems to be universally accepted as a good hire.
Here are some of the reactions from Twitter about Hart’s return to Ann Arbor.

Scott Bell thinks this is a big deal
There’s never been a Michigan athlete I’ve covered quite like Mike Hart. His confidence, charisma and passion for Michigan football is an intangible you can’t just get from any random coaching hire.— Scott Bell (@sbell021) January 13, 2021
Getting him back in Ann Arbor to be a part of this program is a huge win. Kudos.
