Ohio State’s rival Michigan sees its running backs coach Mike Hart leave the program

It has been an offseason of change for Ohio State football’s main rival Michigan, and the movement continued Friday afternoon.

It was reported the Wolverines running back coach, Mike Hart, would not return in the same role in the 2024 season. The former Michigan player, who never defeated the Buckeyes, had been on the staff for the last three years.

Blake Corum burst onto the scene under his watch as one of the better backs in the country while backup Donovan Edwards flashed his potential as well under Hart’s direction. With Corum off to the NFL and Edwards returning, the depth at the position will not be nearly as good as it has been the last few seasons.

This should be viewed as a substantial loss. Hart was one of the few holdovers from Jim Harbaugh’s departure to the NFL.
