Former Georgia Tech defensive coordinator Nate Woody has joined Michigan’s staff in an analyst role, according to a report.
Bruce Feldman of The Athletic reported on Monday morning that Woody was joining Jim Harbaugh in Ann Arbor in a defensive analyst position with the Wolverines. He had previously served as the defensive coordinator at Georgia Tech last fall.
Prior to Georgia Tech, Woody was also the defensive coordinator and linebackers coach at Appalachian State from 2013-17 and served in the same position at Wofford for 13 years, stretching from 2000-12.

Woody was not retained when Geoff Collins took over at Georgia Tech, taking over for recently retired head coach Paul Johnson.
Georgia Tech ranked fourth in total defense in the ACC last year, surrendering 369.6 yards per contest, an average which was No. 46 nationally. The Yellow Jackets also allowed 29.3 points per game under Woody, an average that ranked ninth in the conference.
