The 2020 season was one to forget for the Michigan Wolverines, as they finished the year with a 2-4 record. With the new season just a month away, offensive coordinator Josh Gattis shared his thoughts on the team’s recent failures.
During an interview with Aaron McMann of MLive.com, Gattis admit that he’s ready to leave the 2020 season in the past.
“I wish we could scrap everything,” Gattis said, via MLive.com. “Last year was just a challenging year in so many different ways. Not just football-wise, but in a normal activity.”
Fortunately for Michigan fans, it sounds like the program learned a few lessons last fall.
“I think we all gained a valuable lesson,” Gattis continued. “There were things that we learned last year. Obviously, it’s kind of driven us in a unique direction with the leadership of our players. And it’s also made us realize that you can’t take anything for granted.”

Michigan’s offense was not nearly as dynamic as fans thought it would be in 2020, averaging 28.3 points per game.
Cade McNamara showed some potential toward the second half of the 2020 season, but it was too little, too late for the Wolverines.
The Wolverines are currently projected to start McNamara at quarterback for the season opener, but Alan Bowman and J.J. McCarthy will also be competing for the job during fall camp.
Jim Harbaugh’s squad will begin the 2021 season at home against Western Michigan.
