The Wolverines' assistant coach is leaving for the Seminoles.

Michigan's football program has had some movement on its coaching staff today.

Earlier this afternoon, it was reported that the Wolverines were hiring Cincinnati assistant coach Al Washington, who previously coached at Boston College.

Now, it's being reported that assistant coach Mike Frey is leaving Jim Harbaugh's staff for a position under Willie Taggart at Florida State.

Frey, the offensive tackles/tight ends coach/run game coordinator under Harbaugh, will reportedly serve as the offensive line coach with the Seminoles.

Frey reportedly met with Florida State earlier this week.

His hiring in Tallahassee makes a lot of sense, as he is a Clearwater, Fla. native. Frey played collegiately at Florida State in the 1990s and was a three-year letter-winner on the offensive line playing for Bobby Bowden.

Frey is known for being one of the country's best developers of offensive linemen and has sent countless players to the NFL under his tutelage. He's reportedly familiar with Taggart, too.

It's a good hire for Florida State, but it also means that Michigan's 2018 staff will look a lot different than it did in 2017. The Wolverines could have as many as five new coaches in Ann Arbor next season.
