Ron Prince is coming back to college football. The former Kansas State head coach is reportedly joining the staff at Michigan.
Prince served as head coach at KSU from 2006-08. He took over for, and was succeeded by, legendary head coach Bill Snyder.
Prince's first Wildcats team went 7-6, losing in the Texas Bowl to Rutgers. After back-to-back 5-7 years, he was fired and Snyder came out of retirement to take his program back over.
Since that ouster, Prince has been special teams coach at Virginia and offensive coordinator at Rutgers. He has also had multiple NFL stints.
Most recently, he was the assistant head coach and tight ends, then offensive line coach for the Detroit Lions. After being part of the staff since 2014, he was fired this off-season.
Ron Prince will stay in the area ago, as he is joining Jim Harbaugh's staff.
Prince takes over a spot on Michigan's extended coaching staff left vacated by Ed Warinner, who was promoted to offensive line coach on Thursday. Prince will not have an official coaching role, but instead assist with film review and weekly game preparation.
Prince is a Nebraska native, and attended college at Appalachian State. He has been in coaching since 1992, when he volunteered at Dodge City Community College.
Earlier this off-season, UM added former Florida and Colorado State head coach Jim McElwain to its staff as wide receivers coach. The Wolverines are building quite the staff under Jim Harbaugh.
