Head coach Jim Harbaugh has added a new member to the Michigan Wolverines coaching staff for the 2023 season: offensive analyst Josh Sinagoga. The hiring of a new analyst was expected after former offensive analyst Kirk Campbell was promoted to quarterbacks coach on Jan. 27.
As an analyst, Sinagoga will bring his offensive expertise to the film room where he will be expected to scout future opponents and help build out a game plan each week.
Sinagoga is a rising offensive mind in the industry and will look to craft innovative solutions and provide a fresh perspective to the coaching staff.
