On Monday, news broke that Michigan defensive line coach Greg Mattison was leaving the Wolverines and heading to Ohio State.
Now, a day later, a report has surfaced claiming that Wolverines’ linebackers coach Al Washington is headed to Columbus to coach the same position group.
From Letterman Row:
The Buckeyes swooped in on Tuesday to add the second former Michigan assistant in as many days, with multiple sources confirming to Lettermen Row that linebackers coach Al Washington will lead the same position on the other side of the rivalry and return to his hometown of Columbus. He’ll rejoin Greg Mattison, who was announced as a new co-defensive coordinator by coach Ryan Day on Monday as he puts together his first group of assistants as the leader at Ohio State.
Ohio State has not officially confirmed the move at this point.
If this proves to be true, Washington would make the 12th Michigan assistant to leave the program since Jim Harbaugh took over as head coach.
