Back in January, Jim Harbaugh and the Michigan Wolverines lost defensive coordinator Mike Macdonald to John Harbaugh and the Baltimore Ravens. 

The Wolverines ultimately replaced Macdonald with Jesse Minter, who coached at Vanderbilt in 2021.

Speaking to the media this Tuesday, Jim admit he had a discussion with John about who'll be his defensive coordinator for the 2022 season. 

John told Jim that he could have either Macdonald or Minter as his defensive coordinator, saying, "take your pick."   

Although the Wolverines have a new defensive coordinator for the upcoming season, Jim believes the scheme will be similar. 

Minter has a plethora of experience as a defensive coach, spending time at Cincinnati, Georgia State, Indiana State, Notre Dame and Vanderbilt. He also coached on the Ravens from 2017-20. 

As for the Ravens, their defense will now be led by Macdonald. This will mark his second stint in Baltimore.
