According to a report from The Athletic’s Bruce Feldman, Michigan Wolverines linebackers coach George Helow and the program have decided to mutually part ways.

This move should correspond directly with the addition of Chris Partridge to Michigan’s staff, which was announced a couple weeks ago. While it wasn’t initially announced what position he would be coaching, it seems very, very likely he will coach the linebackers.

Helow has been Michigan’s linebackers coach the last two years. Before that, he served as the special teams coordinator and inside linebackers coach for Maryland. His previous experience also includes the safeties coach of Colorado State (2018-19), safeties coach of Georgia (2014-15), defensive graduate assistant for Florida State (2013) and a defensive intern at Alabama (2012).

Wherever he ends up, we wish Helow nothing but the best moving forward.

6 p.m. update: Helow released a statement on his Twitter account, which you can read below.
