Report: Michigan OL coach Ed Warinner 'departing' Wolverines, replacement lined up
Michigan offensive line coach Ed Warinner is leaving the program, according to a report.
That’s per Stadium’s Brett McMurphy, who adds that Jim Harbaugh is targeting former receiver Ron Bellamy to fill the open spot on staff.

Bellamy is currently a high school coach at Bloomfield High School. He played at Michigan from 1999-2002.
Warinner’s contract expired earlier this month, but the news that he won’t be returning is a bit surprising. He’s been with Michigan since 2018.
According to 247Sports’ Sam Webb, Sherrone Moore will slide up to be the co-offensive coordinator and offensive line coach. Bellamy is expected to be named Michigan’s TE and WR coach.
Moore played offensive guard at Oklahoma in the mid-2000s before starting his coaching career at Louisville. Despite playing the position, he’s never been an offensive line coach before at the collegiate level. He’s been on staff since 2018.
Earlier this week, Michigan announced its full coaching staff on the defensive side of the ball.
