Another assistant under Rich Rod lands coaching gig

Eight of nine former Michigan assistants under Rich Rodriguez have now landed other jobs.

Most recently, former Michigan safeties coach Adam Braithwaite accepted the defensive coordinator job at Christopher Newport University. Braithwaite served as a grad assistant for two seasons at Michigan before his promotion to safeties coach last season.

In January, three former Michigan assistants joined Todd Graham’s staff at Pittsburgh. Calvin McGee will serve as the co-offensive coordinator / running backs / assistant head coach, Tony Dews will coach the tight ends, and Tony Gibson will serve as the corners coach / recruiting coordinator.

Indiana head coach Kevin Wilson hired Rod Smith as co-offensive coordinator / quarterbacks coach and Greg Frey as offensive line coach.

Fred Jackson remained with Michigan under Brady Hoke. Jackson will continue to coach the running backs for the Wolverines.

Former Michigan defensive line coach Bruce Tall recently accepted the defensive coordinator job at Charlotte, who will begin playing football in 2013. The 49ers hired former Wake Forest defensive coordinator Brad Lambert as their first ever head coach.

To our knowledge, Greg Robinson has yet to land another coaching position.
