Michigan is looking to add to its defensive staff, according to a report.
According to 247Sports, the Wolverines are targeting Boston College co-defensive coordinator and defensive backs coach Anthony Campanile to add to their defensive staff. Michigan has lost linebackers coach Al Washington and defensive line coach Greg Mattison to Ohio State.
Campanile has spent the last three seasons with the Eagles and has helped develop one of the top defenses in the ACC. The report says that Campanile met with Michigan on Tuesday.
Michigan has set its sights on Boston College co-defensive coordinator/defensive backs coach Anthony Campanile for one of its vacant defensive staff openings. The Fair Lawn (N.J.) native spent the last three seasons helping the Eagles field one of the nation’s top performing secondaries. He interviewed with Jim Harbaugh & company Tuesday, and now the Wolverines are hoping to add his expertise somewhere in their back seven.
Campanile has worked at Boston College and at Rutgers. He would be a nice addition to Jim Harbaugh’s defensive staff and would be an asset to defensive coordinator Don Brown.
Michigan has owned one of the B1G’s top defenses since Harbaugh’s arrival in 2015 but is losing a ton of talent from the 2018 group that propelled the Wolverines to a 10-3 season.
