Michigan's football program has a new assistant coach. He used to coach at Ohio State.
Ed Warinner, who served as an offensive line coach and co-offensive coordinator for the Buckeyes under Urban Meyer, has joined Jim Harbaugh's staff. He'll be the O-line coach.
The former Ohio State assistant has proven to be extremely successful at developing offensive linemen. He's done it everywhere he's been.
At OSU specifically, he developed multiple players into high NFL Draft picks. Many of those draft picks have gone on to become starters in the league.
Today, Michigan put out a recruiting graphic touting all of the players Warinner has developed. It includes former Buckeyes on the graphic.

Unsurprisingly, this has become a laughing matter for some Ohio State fans. It is a little bit odd that the Wolverines would show off OSU players on its own recruiting posters.
At the same time, it makes sense. Recruits care about how good coaches are at putting players into the NFL. And Warinner hasn't coached anyone at Michigan yet, so the Wolverines have to show off the players he has coached. Many of those guys played at Ohio State.
It's a little bi awkward, I guess. But it makes sense for Michigan to do what it did.
