In our latest Michigan Wolverines news roundup, Mike Hart will interview for the Indiana head coaching job, plus Michigan football players earn All-Big Ten honors. 

When you are having as much success as the Michigan football program is having right now, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that people on the coaching staff are becoming hot commodities.

We have heard Sherrone Moore’s name mentioned along with other head-coaching jobs, although there haven’t been any interviews or anything, but one Michigan Wolverines assistant coach who will be interviewing for a head-coaching job is Mike Hart, who will be interviewed by Indiana. This is according to Peegs.com, a 247 Sports site that covers the Hoosiers.

Indiana fired Tom Allen after another disappointing season. Hart was the running backs coach for Allen before coming back to coach for Michigan football under Jim Harbaugh.

Hart came back in 2021 and he’s been a key part of the turnaround. He’s overseen one of the best running back rooms in college football. Michigan football has also lost just three games with him on staff.

Hart serves as the run-game coordinator as well as the running backs coach for the Michigan Wolverines and in the 2024 class, he landed the commitment Jordan Marshall, a top-100 running back out of Ohio.

We’ll see how the interview process goes. Jon Gruden has also been mentioned as a candidate for the Hoosiers among others.

Michigan Wolverines earned All-Big Ten honors

Michigan football had 14 different players earn All-Big Ten honors on defense and special as announced by the conference on Tuesday.

Incredibly, despite going undefeated, Michigan football had just one consensus First-Team All-Big Ten defender and that was Will Johnson. Mason Graham and Mike Sainristil were also selected First-Team All-Big Ten by the coaches or media.

The biggest snubs in my opinion were Kris Jenkins being selected Second Team, as well as Michael Barrett getting just Third Team and Honorable Mention.

Like do these coaches even watch these games?

Sherrone Moore is a Broyles Award finalist

In another bit of news, Sherrone Moore, who was the acting head coach for the Michigan Wolverines over the past three weeks, was named as a finalist for the Broyles Award, which goes to the top assistant coach in college football.

Since Moore has led the Wolverines to a 4-0 record, in addition to his stellar work with the offensive line and play calling, he has to be a shoo-in.
