Pep Hamilton leaves the Browns to join Michigan

Last season the Michigan Wolverines were successful in nearly every category you might be able to drum up, with one exception: they couldn’t throw the ball. Finishing the season ranked 86th in the country in passing, the Wolverines struggled to move the ball through the air.

With the season still a game away from being in the books, Jim Harbaugh and his Michigan program are wasting no time in making the personnel moves they feel will get them into next years college football playoff.

Today Cleveland Browns offensive coordinator Pep Hamilton officially accepted a position as assistant head coach and passing coordinator with the University of Michigan program.

Former Browns Asst HC Pep Hamilton had accepted an offer to become Michigan's Asst HC/passing coordinator, per school source.

The move reunites Harbaugh and Hamilton who worked together while Harbaugh was the head coach at Stanford. Hamilton, meanwhile, has coached with the Indianapolis Colts and the Cleveland Browns. While working at Stanford with Harbaugh, Hamilton served as the wide-receivers coach, and received a promotion to offensive coordinator after Harbaugh left to coach in the NFL.

The Cleveland Browns struggled to do much of anything this, and while the position itself is something of a lateral move for Hamilton, he gets the opportunity to coach for a winning club.
