Devin Bush Sr., the head coach at Flanagan HS in Florida, is reportedly on the verge of joining Jim Harbaugh's staff at Michigan, according to a report from the Miami Herald.

He built the program at Flanagan into what it is today, winning a state championship with the school this past seasons.

Bush's son, 2016 linebacker Devin Bush Jr., signed with Michigan as an early enrollee and two other Flanagan players joined the program in defensive backs Josh Metellus and Devin Gil. The Wolverines have built themselves a pipeline there.

If Bush were to accept a role with the program, he would likely slide into the same role that Chris Partridge, now linebackers coach, had when he was brought in last season as the director of player personnel.

That move ended up working out for the Wolverines, as they poached most of New Jersey's top talent with the help of the former coach of Paramus HS.

It is clear that Michigan is trying to drill the Florida recruiting pipeline like they did with other states in the just-finished 2016 cycle with the news they will spend a portion of spring practice at IMG Academy and now with Bush possibly jumping on board.

The state of Florida generally produces some of the top talent in all of high school football, so if the Wolverines are able to cut into that and receive commitments from players down there, it would be a huge positive for them moving forward.

And, it makes it easier to see why some of the powers that be want them out of SEC country.
