 ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) -Michigan coach Rich Rodriguez filled out most of his coaching staff Tuesday, bringing many of the assistants who helped him build West Virginia into a Big East power.
Rodriguez will be joined by six former Mountaineer coaches and five members of their support staff, choosing to keep only one of Lloyd Carr's assistants: Fred Jackson as running backs coach.
But he has not hired or identified who will be his defensive coordinator, the only opening left on his first staff with the Wolverines.
Rodriguez on Tuesday announced he has hired: Calvin Magee, associate head coach/offensive coordinator; Tony Dews, wide receivers; Greg Frey, offensive line; Tony Gibson, secondary; Jay Hopson, defensive assistant; Rod Smith, quarterbacks; Bruce Tall, defensive assistant; Alex Herron, offensive graduate assistant; Jahmile Addae, defensive graduate assistant; and Eric Smith, offensive quality control.
Magee, Dews, Frey, Gibson, Smith and Tall coached with Rodriguez at West Virginia. Hopson is a former Southern Mississippi defensive coordinator.
Carr retired, ending his 13-season career as Michigan's head coach, on Jan. 1 at the Capital One Bowl. The Wolverines (9-4) ended the season beating Florida 41-35 to win their first bowl game since 2003, and went from being unranked to No. 18 in the final Associated Press poll.
Ron English is the only former Carr assistant who has landed a job. He was hired by Louisville to be its defensive coordinator, filling the same role he had at Michigan.
Tennessee might add two former Michigan assistants: offensive coordinator Mike DeBord and quarterbacks coach Scott Loeffler.
