Former Michigan football OC Josh Gattis fired by Miami after one year

Well, this is awkward.

Former Michigan football offensive coordinator Josh Gattis thought he was getting a better deal by departing Ann Arbor in order to join Mario Cristobal in Miami, and it turns out, that’s just not the case.

Gattis was the OC for the Wolverines for three seasons, winning the coveted Broyles Award in 2021, given to the nation’s best assistant coach. However, he appeared to feel unwanted and blindsided when Jim Harbaugh interviewed for the Minnesota Vikings job, with him also not appearing to be in the running for the head coaching position if Harbaugh would have left. So he departed the program.

And now, after just one year, Gattis is out, having been let go by Cristobal and the Hurricanes.

Now, Michigan is in the market for another coach, but Gattis somewhat burnt the bridge on his way out of town when he sent a long text to his players slamming the administration on his way out of Ann Arbor.

We’ll see where the former Michigan coach lands next.
