It wasn’t exactly clear what Jim McElwain’s exact role would be at the University of Michigan. That is, until now.

In an interview with ESPN’s Chris Low, McElwain confirmed he would be coaching the wide receivers at Michigan and would “also be involved in helping to coordinate the offense and develop the weekly game plan.”

McElwain told Low he is “excited to get back into it” and he is “looking forward to going there and learning and helping Michigan get better.” McElwain is set to begin work tomorrow, Sunday, Feb. 18.

“Helping coordinate the offense and develop the weekly game plan” is a pretty interesting way to describe what McElwain will do at Michigan. It doesn’t exactly mean he is going to be the offensive coordinator — a job currently belonging to Tim Drevno — but I would not be at the very least surprised if some job titles were shuffled around with McElwain’s addition to the staff.
