Michigan football fans have been yearning for former Michigan quarterbacks/wide receiver coach and passing game coordinator Jedd Fisch to return to the program after 2017’s letdown on offense.

It was a pipe dream then, but now it is confirmed that is is not happening. At least not this offseason.

Fisch is reportedly taking a job in the NFL with the Los Angeles Rams. His new title will be “senior offensive assistant.” The Rams’ Twitter account tweeted the news a short time ago.

This is pretty interesting news, honestly. Fisch was in the running for several college head coaching gigs this offseason, and making a return to the NFL was not something I thought he would end up doing. He was the offensive coordinator for the Jacksonville Jaguars from 2013-14, while also coaching several offensive positions for the Seahawks, Texans, Ravens and Broncos.

As offensive coordinator with the UCLA Bruins in 2017, Fisch guided their offense to the No. 22 total offense and the No. 4 passing offense in the country. He was also the interim head coach when Jim Mora was fired in November.
