WATCH: Entire Michigan football introductory Sherrone Moore head coach press conference

On Wednesday, Michigan football lost legendary head coach Jim Harbaugh, a man who will go down in maize and blue history. To replace him, the Wolverines stayed in-house, hiring Harbaugh’s personal pick for his successor: his protege Sherrone Moore, the former offensive coordinator.

Moore has been in Ann Arbor since the 2018 season, having first been the team’s tight ends coach before being elevated to co-offensive coordinator and offensive line coach in 2021.

On Saturday, Moore was formally introduced as the 21st head coach in school history. He spoke about taking over for Harbaugh, how he’ll attack retaining staff and player personnel, the honor of being the first Black head coach in program history and much more.

The event was televised by Big Ten Network and can be seen in its entirety below including with opening remarks by board of regents chair Sarah Hubbard and athletic director Warde Manuel.
