Report: Former Michigan Star Mike Hart To Coach Running Backs For Hometown Syracuse

For years, Syracuse fans have played the "what if" game about Mike Hart, the hometown star running back who went on to play at Michigan, rather than for the Orange. While Hart's playing days are behind him, the Michigan record holder will, at long last, make it to SU as running backs coach under new head coach Dino Babers. Sports Illustrated's Thayer Evans broke the news this evening.

Hart coached running backs at Western Michigan from 2014-15, and held the same position at Eastern Michigan in 2012-13. His hire will be a popular one in Central New York, and it's pretty cool for Michigan fans to see the former Wolverine superstar work his way through the coaching ranks.
