Report: Michigan assistant to become UCLA’s new offensive coordinator

At this time last year, Michigan gave Jedd Fisch a raise to stay on the team’s staff for 2016.

A year later, another team will reportedly pony up for the Wolverines’ passing game coordinator.

According to Fox Sports’ Bruce Feldman, Fisch will become UCLA’s new offensive coordinator. At Michigan, Fisch split play-calling duties with offensive coordinator Jim Drevno.

The former NFL assistant helped the Wolverines to the B1G’s top scoring offense and No. 2 passing offense in 2016. First-year starter Wilton Speight was third in the B1G in passing. In 2015, Fisch helped Jake Rudock  become the second quarterback in program history to reach 3,000 passing yards.

Fisch will reportedly take over a UCLA offense that’s had three offensive coordinators in three seasons. He’ll work with polarizing NFL draft prospect Josh Rosen.

Michigan hasn’t confirmed Feldman’s report.
