Dad of top 2019 QB will take job at Oregon, not Michigan

Dad of top 2019 QB will take job at Oregon, not Michigan

In the end, and at least when it comes to the Michigan angle, it was much ado about nothing.

Much to the chagrin of ESPN talking head Paul Pete Finebaum, Jim Harbaugh had hired Michael Johnson Sr. as a part of his UM football staff in an unspecified role, with the expectation being that the one-time NFL coordinator would be added as an on-field assistant once the NCAA approved a 10th full-time assistant. That proposal is instead expected to be delayed until January of next year, leaving Johnson, the father of the top dual-threat quarterback in the Class of 2019, as a very overqualified football staffer in Ann Arbor as Harbaughs current nine-man staff is full.

In whats seemingly a related development, its now being reported that Johnson will take a job as the wide receivers coach at Oregon instead.

Hearing that former Kings Academy coach Michael Johnson is set be hired as the new WR coach at #Oregon. #PeteFinebaum #Clueless
