Jim Harbaugh sheds light on Michigan’s quarterback hierarchy

Heading into the 2020 season, many believed that Joe Milton would help elevate Michigan to the next level.

Unfortunately, that has not been the case as Milton has not only struggled, but he has looked out of his league.

On Saturday, during a 49-11 loss to Wisconsin, Milton was absolutely awful as he completed just 9 of 19 passes for 98 yards and two interceptions before being benched in favor of redshirt freshman, Cade McNamara.

McNamara, who was 4 for 7 for 74 yards and a TD, came in and immediately led the Wolverines on a touchdown drive.

Ever since the moment Milton was benched, there has been speculation as to who will be the Wolverines starting quarterback moving forward.

On Monday, Wolverines head coach Jim Harbaugh spoke to reporters about the quarterback situation and he said that both Milton and McNamara would be getting reps with the first-team offense throughout the week.

“We’re going to open it up,” Harbaugh said. “Both will see action with the 1’s throughout this week.”
