Ed Warriner might have a new home soon.

Jim Harbaugh is reported interested in hiring a former Ohio State coach. The Michigan man has his eyes set on Ed Warriner.

According to a report from Football Scoop, Harbaugh has offered Warriner a position on the Michigan staff. Warriner most recently coached with another Big Ten team.

P.J. Fleck hired him as Minnesota's offensive line coach and run game coordinator. Although after just one season with the Gophers it looks like he's headed elsewhere.

Warriner served as Ohio State's offensive coordinator in 2016. During that season the Buckeyes averaged nearly 40 points per game.

Prior to becoming the offensive coordinator, he was the team's co-offensive coordinator. During his three seasons as the co-OC, Warriner helped the Buckeyes set numerous Big Ten records and win a national championship.

Now, he could do the same at Michigan. The Wolverines have struggled on the offensive side of the ball in recent seasons, forcing Harbaugh's critics to come out in full force.

The report does not specify if Warriner has accepted the position. It also doesn't state what position he will hold with the staff.

Warriner's son is a 3-star 2018 linebacker recruit. According to 247Sports, Edward Warriner is projected to land at Michigan State.

This could be a potentially huge hire for Harbaugh. With Shea Patterson's eligibility hanging in the hands of the NCAA, any help on the offensive side of the ball will help.
