Report: Jedd Fisch Leaving Michigan To Take UCLA Offensive Coordinator Job

Jedd Fisch, Michigan's passing game coordinator and quarterbacks/wide receivers coach, is heading to UCLA to take over as offensive coordinator, according to a report.

FOX Sports' Bruce Feldman reported on Twitter that Fisch is set to make the move out West to the Bruins.

Fisch did a very nice job with Michigan's offense in two years under Jim Harbaugh, turning the unit helmed by Wilton Speight, Amara Darboh, Jake Butt, and Jehu Chesson.

At UCLA, he inherits a very interesting situation. Quarterback Josh Rosen possesses incredible talent, but a shoulder injury limited him to just four games this season. As a freshman in 2015, Rosen threw for 3,670 yards, 23 touchdowns, and 11 interceptions, completing 60-percent of his passes.

Michigan still has offensive coordinator Tim Drevno, whose background lies more in offensive line play and the running game. At UCLA, Fisch replaces Kennedy Polamalu, who had one year at the helm of the Bruins offense. The Bruins finished ranked 91st in total offense in the country this season, and struggled to a 4-8 record. Next year is huge for head coach Jim Mora, and he's reeled in a pretty big-name coordinator to try and get the offense back on track.
