Sherrone Moore plans for the 2024 season 

There’s no time to waste and Michigan’s new HC is more than aware of the things that need to be done for 2024. Becoming one of the nation’s top recruiters at No. 21 as per 247Sports, one of his main focuses is on recruiting key players that can uphold the standards of the National Champions. Coming to coaching assistants, Michigan already lost three major coaches to Jim Harbaugh and the LA Chargers and Sherrone Moore needs to make a decision.

Coaches like TE coach Grant Newsome, DL coach Mike Elston, DB coach Steve Clinkscale, QB coach Kirk Campbell, RB coach Mike Hart, and WR coach Ron Bellamy are in line for promotion to OC or DC. And with QB JJ McCarthy heading to the NFL, Moore needs to find a new QB which is a debate between Alex Orji and incoming 2024 recruit No. 8 QB Jadyn Davis. It’s truly going to be a lot of responsibility for Moore but fans are confident in him given his strong leadership when he led the Wolverines during their former HC’s suspension in the last season.
