The University of Michigan announced today that it has hired Doug Nussmeier as offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach for head football coach Brady Hoke. Nussmeier replaces Al Borges, whom U-M fired after three seasons, including a 2013 campaign in which the Wolverines finished 7-6 and ranked 87th in the nation in total offense.

The 43-year-old Nussmeier comes to Ann Arbor from the University of Alabama, where over the past two seasons he worked in the same dual role for the Crimson Tide as he will beginning in 2014 for the Maize and Blue. He did so under Nick Saban, former coach at Michigan State, where Nussmeier worked from 2003-05 as quarterbacks coach. In 2012, Alabama finished the year as national champions and had more than 3,000 yards both rushing and passing.

In an article published today to the school's official athletic website,, Hoke is quoted in part as saying, "Doug is a highly respected offensive coordinator and has earned a reputation as being a great mentor to quarterbacks, specifically, where he's coached Pro Bowlers, top NFL draft choices and Heisman Trophy finalists."

The university will host a press conference tomorrow (Friday) to introduce Nussmeier and will stream the event live on
