Michigan Football Hires Devin Bush Sr. as Defensive Analyst

One of the worst kept secrets of recent months has officially become reality.

The rumors have been swirling for what seems like months, but one of the worst kept secrets out there is now official.

Michigan Football has hired Devin Bush Sr. as a Defensive Analyst on Jim Harbaugh's coaching staff, according to 247 Sports' Ryan Bartow.

He will reportedly begin work in Ann Arbor starting next week.

Bush was previously the head coach at Flanagan HS in Hollywood, Florida, where he built the program into a state championship team this past season in one of the state's toughest divisions.

He joins a trio of former players he coached in Ann Arbor with the most notable being his son, four-star early enrollee Devin Bush Jr., along with defensive backs Josh Metellus and Devin Gil.

Bush was a star safety for the Florida State Seminoles and a first round NFL Draft pick that played from 1995-2002.

Some believed he would slide into the spot Chris Partridge left behind as the Director of Player Personnel when he became the linebackers coach. This appears to be a different role.

Michigan still has a spot open on the coaching staff, having to now replace Greg Jackson, who has been hired by the Dallas Cowboys as a secondary coach.
