Michigan Football: Watch LIVE Coverage of Doug Nussmeier Press Conference
New offensive coordinator/quarterback coach Doug Nussmeier will be introduced at 11:00am Eastern time Friday morning 1/10/2014.
From Coach Nussmeier: “I am extremely excited to join the University of Michigan and work with Brady Hoke, the staff and players,” said Nussmeier. “I’m proud of what we accomplished in two seasons at Alabama, and I owe a great deal to Coach Saban for that opportunity. Michigan is a program I’ve always had deep respect for, and I’m looking forward to getting started in Ann Arbor and being a part of the great tradition there.”

Nussmeier was a finalist for the University of Washington head coaching position this year.
He is one of only four players in NCAA history to pass for 10,000 yards and rush for 1,000 during his career (Steve McNair, Daunte Culpepper and Colin Kaepernick are the others).
In two seasons under Nussmeier, Alabama quarterback AJ McCarron passed for 5,996 yards, 58 touchdowns and only 10 interceptions, while completing over 67 percent of his passes.
In the past six seasons as an offensive coordinator, Nussmeier’s offenses have produced six 1,000-yard running backs.
Nussmeier’s niece, Barbara Lanier, is a sophomore on the Michigan water polo team. Her mother is Doug’s sister.
