Ed Warinner expected to become Michigan OL coach, per report

Ed Warinner has only been with Michigan’s football program for a month, but he’s reportedly getting a promotion. Warinner will be Michigan’s offensive line coach in 2018, according to FOX Sports’ Bruce Feldman.

Warinner is taking the role after it was reported that Michigan offensive coordinator/offensive line coach Tim Drevno was stepping down.

Ed Warinner reportedly taking role as Michigan OL coach

Warinner was hired by Jim Harbaugh as an offensive analyst last month. It was a move that raised some eyebrows, mainly because Warinner had spent five seasons (2012-2016) working under Urban Meyer at Ohio State. Warinner had a role as a co-offensive coordinator in each of his five seasons with the Buckeyes.

But Warinner’s coaching career has mainly focused on the offensive line. He was Ohio State’s offensive line coach in four of his five seasons, and he also held that title at Notre Dame, Illinois, Kansas, Air Force and Army. Warinner was Minnesota’s offensive line coach in 2017 before leaving for Michigan.

Drevno’s departure was the latest staff shakeup for Harbaugh’s staff. Michigan had no official word about Drevno or Warinner as of early Friday afternoon, and it’s unclear who will take over the role as the program’s offensive coordinator.
