The Michigan Wolverines have been busy replacing the coaching staff poached by Ohio State and other college football programs. Earlier this week, Jim Harbaugh and company landed former Alabama assistant Josh Gattis for the team's offensive coordinator position.

On Wednesday, Harbaugh kept the hires rolling with the addition of Shaun Nua. The former BYU defensive lineman spent the 2018 season as the defensive line coach at Arizona State and will assume the same role with the Wolverines.

Here's the news from Sam Webb.

Nua spent four years as a lineman for the Cougars before landing with the Pittsburgh Steelers - where he won a Super Bowl. After three seasons with the Steelers, Nua broke into the coaching ranks at his alma mater before taking over the Navy defensive line for five seasons.

Now he's headed to Ann Arbor to work for Don Brown and a bevy of talented defensive lineman.
