There will be a new man in charge of the Michigan offense next season, as the school announced on Wednesday that offensive coordinator Al Borges will not be retained for the 2014 season.

"Decisions like these are never easy," said Brady Hoke in a release. "I have a great amount of respect for Al as a football coach and, more importantly, as a person. I appreciate everything he has done for Michigan Football for the past three seasons."

Borges came to Ann Arbor with Brady Hoke from San Diego State, but there had been a lot of speculation about his future with the program following an off year for the Michigan offense.

Michigan's offense finished the season averaging 32.2 points per game (46th nationally), but only 373.5 yards per game (97th) and 5.44 yards per play (76th). While the 32.2 points per game should be more than enough to win with at Michigan, the fact is that if you take away the 63 points the Wolverines scored against Indiana and the 40 points they scored in four overtimes against Penn State, Michigan averaged only 25 points per game in conference play.

There is no word where Michigan will turn for Borges' replacement.
