Michigan loses top assistant Jedd Fisch to UCLA as offensive coordinator
Fisch has coordinated offenses across college football and the NFL
Michigan passing game coordinator Jedd Fisch will be the new offensive coordinator at UCLA. Fisch confirmed the move via Twitter on Wednesday. CBS Sports' Dennis Dodd first reported that Fisch would be leaving on Monday.
Fisch will become UCLA's third offensive coordinator in the last three years, replacing Kennedy Polamalu, who spent only one year in the position after he replaced Noel Mazzone following the 2015 season.
Fisch has spend the last two seasons at Michigan. Along with being the passing game coordinator (coaching quarterbacks and wide receivers), he split play-calling duties with Tim Drevno. While at Michigan, Fisch helped mold both Jake Rudock and Wilton Speight. At UCLA, he'll inherit Josh Rosen, a highly touted signal-caller whose season ended early because of a shoulder injury.
Before joining the Michigan staff, Fisch had spent time as an offensive coordinator on both the NFL and college levels, at times coaching under Pete Carroll, Mike Shanahan and Steve Spurrier.
