Michigan Football has added a new but familiar face to their recruiting department.

It appears the Wolverines have hired Glenn “Shemy” Schembechler.

Per Schembechler’s Twitter bio, his position for UM is Assistant Director of Football Recruiting.

Shemy is the son of former Michigan head coach Bo Schembechler and has known current head coach Jim Harbaugh for decades.

While his father Bo was a lifer in college football, Schemy has loads of experience as an NFL scout.

  • 1995-96: Kansas City Chiefs scouting intern
  • 1998-2000: Chicago Bears scout
  • 2000-2012: Washington Commanders area scout
  • 2012-13: Seattle Seahawks college scouting consultant
  • 2019-23: Las Vegas Raiders area scout and college scout

Jim Harbaugh’s had a track record of hiring former NFL coaches and scouts to Michigan’s staff, and Harbaugh also values people who have a connection to the program and personally care about its trajectory. Schembechler, at the very least, checks these boxes with ease.

Michigan has been dominant in recruiting of late, with their 2024 class currently ranked at No. 1 by 247 Sports. Schembechler will have to hit the ground running, because the program has momentum and doesn’t want to slow down.
