Michigan offensive coordinator Josh Gattis explains 'Excitement' with Wolverines' offense
Michigan offensive coordinator Josh Gattis is looking forward to some stability this offseason.
In a recent interview on the In the Trenches podcast with Jon Jansen, Gattis explained his excitement for this upcoming season.
“I’m excited because this is the first time in two years that we haven’t had a wholesale change,” Gattis said, via 247Sports. “Two years ago, coming in, the lack of depth we had at running back. The roster that we had, we had all new players at running back to start the season that had never touched a football in a game-like scenario. You go into last year having to replace four starters on the offensive line, with all guys who hadn’t really started games for us.
“When you got that amount of attrition that totally wipes away a position each year, there’s challenges that you go in and approach with. But going into this offseason, there’s no major attrition. We’ve got good depth across the board, maybe not as deep at some positions, but we’ve got quality depth with players that have played or started in games.”
This will be Gattis’ third season running the offense in Ann Arbor. In addition to having the most stability and depth he’s had so far, the quarterback room is also looking like a major improvement.
Michigan wrapped up its spring practice period this weekend, so now attention will turn toward summer camp.
