Keeping track of Michigan Football’s departures, transfers, coaching changes this offseason

New, 51 comments

The offseason is upon us. We’re keeping track of all the moves.

NCAA Football: Michigan at Rutgers Vincent Carchietta-USA TODAY Sports

Here, we will be keeping track of the departures, additions, coaching changes, and more in one handy place. The Michigan Wolverines are headed for an offseason of big changes at almost every level of the program, so it might be wise to keep this bookmarked. We will update it as more comes in throughout the next several months.

Michigan also figures to be more active in the transfer portal this offseason than perhaps they ever have given a loaded pool of talent due to recent developments in immediate eligibility.
