Report: Michigan adding another Baltimore Ravens assistant to staff to be QBs coach
Jim Harbaugh has had no issue plucking assistant coaches from his brother John’s staff in Baltimore. First, it was Mike Macdonald who left the Ravens to be the defensive coordinator in Ann Arbor. Now, there’s a second.
NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport is reporting that Matt Weiss is leaving Baltimore to be the quarterbacks coach at Michigan. He had been the running backs coach with the Ravens the past two seasons.
Weiss worked with Jim Harbaugh as a graduate assistant at Stanford. He has been on John Harbaugh’s staff with the Ravens since 2009 and has experience with both sides of the football.
Another #Ravens-to-#Michigan coaching move: Baltimore RBs coach Matt Weiss is leaving to become the Wolverines QBs coach, source said. Weiss has led the NFL’s No. 1 rushing attack under John Harbaugh, now will coach QBs under Jim Harbaugh. The two were together at Stanford.

Michigan made a change at quarterbacks coach during the offseason, one of the many moves Jim Harbaugh made in the months after the 2020 campaign ended. The Wolverines did not retain Ben McDaniels, who is now on staff with the Houston Texans.
The hiring of Weiss comes just a few days after linebackers coach Brian Jean-Mary accepted a position with the Tennessee staff. He spent just one year in Ann Arbor.
Harbaugh and the Wolverines are scheduled to take the practice field on Monday to start spring workouts. Michigan is coming off a 2-4 year in 2020, the worst of the Harbaugh era.
