Michigan assistant Jedd Fisch named new UCLA offensive coordinator

There’s a multitude of reasons why the Michigan Wolverines have exponentially risen back to the national spotlight over the last two years under the direction of head coach Jim Harbaugh. He has had the fortune of surrounding himself with excellent staffers. Among those being offensive assistant Jedd Fisch.

However, come 2017, Fisch will be working at his reported new position cross-country.

Fisch, 40, has spent the last two seasons as the quarterbacks coach, wide receivers coach, and passing-game coordinator for Michigan. In each of those two seasons, the Wolverines offense saw major improvements prior to when Harbaugh and Co. set up shop. Michigan this season was the No. 1 scoring offense in the Big Ten, the only team to average better than 40 points per game, and they ranked 2nd in total offense behind only Ohio State.

The new UCLA OC position will mark Fisch’s 12th different gig over the last 20 seasons, with stops at both college and professional, as well as a cup of coffee in the Arena Football League. For the Bruins, it will be their third different OC in as many seasons and Fisch will be given the task of unlocking a very talented young quarterback in Josh Rosen, who’s sophomore slump campaign was riddled with injuries.
