Michigan Football has signed passing game coordinator Jedd Fisch to a two-year extension, according to a report from Sports Illustrated's Thayer Evans.

Fisch shared multiple duties on the Wolverine coaching staff this past season, serving as the quarterbacks and wide receivers coach while also having a big part in the offensive gameplans along with Jim Harbaugh and offensive coordinator Tim Drevno.

Evans also disclosed the rumored salary terms:

Fisch’s extension will pay him an average of between $650,000 and $750,000 annually, plus incentives, per the source. Details of the extension have not yet been released.

Fisch was arguably Michigan's most valuable assistant coach in 2015 after being brought in as a member of Harbaugh's staff. Quarterback Jake Rudock made huge progress throughout the year and the passing attack developed into one of the better ones in the conference down the stretch.

Jehu Chesson's step forward can also be attributed to Fisch's tutelage. He, Amara Darboh and Jake Butt all eclipsed 50 catches and more than 600 yards receiving.

It was important for Michigan to lock him up after being on a one-year deal last season. With college and NFL head coaches scrambling to fill out their staffs at this time of year, it is a positive for Harbaugh and the Wolverines to keep Fisch around.
