The Michigan Wolverines have seen many changes happen this offseason as Jim Harbaugh updates his coaching and support staff. A new week comes with a few more notable updates, namely in the recruiting department.
Aashon Larkins has moved into a role as Michigan’s director of recruiting after spending the last few years as an analyst. Larkins took on an on-field role last season after Bob Schoop stepped away from the program after being hired in 2020.
Jerrett McElwain, the son of former Michigan assistant and Central Michigan head coach Jim McElwain, has become the program’s director of scouting. He joined the staff in 2018.
Michigan’s reported interest in Vanderbilt on-campus recruiting director Christina DeRuyter appears to have materialized into a hire, as she now appears in the University of Michigan directory.
These roles work hand-in-hand with Courtney Morgan, who was hired this spring as Michigan’s director of player personnel. Morgan’s role sees him spearheading recruiting efforts while also navigating student-athlete business operations with the NIL legislation pending.
This seems like it might tie things up on the clerical side of things for the football program with the possibility that some backend roles are filled in via analyst gigs. The dust has settled on an offseason of change and we will have to wait and see how it works out moving forward under a rebooted Harbaugh regime.
