Sherrone Moore, who was previously the offensive coordinator and offensive line coach at Michigan, has been promoted to the position of head coach, according to an announcement made by the university on Friday.
This move is a swift move to replace Jim Harbaugh with Moore, who was one of the primary figures behind this year's championship run.
Moore is the first Black person to ever hold the position of head coach in the history of the program.
According to Moore, who was quoted in the announcement made by the university, "I have been preparing my entire coaching career for this opportunity, and I can't think of a better place to be head coach than at the University of Michigan."
In order to carry on the tradition of championship football that has been played at the University of Michigan for the past 144 years, we will do everything in our power as a TEAM each and every day.
Our standards are not going to be altered. We are going to be a championship-level team that is intelligent, tough, dependable, persistent, and enthusiastic.
We are going to be a team that loves football and plays with passion for the game, the winged helmet, and each other.
In college football circles, Moore was considered to be the most logical candidate for Harbaugh in the event that he decided to join the National Football League for a second tenure.
