The Michigan Wolverines have reportedly added a defensive assistant to the coaching staff in the form of former Penn State and Mississippi State defensive coordinator Bob Shoop. Rumors began to circle on social media this morning before multiple outlets confirmed later in the day.

Shoop has coached at Vanderbilt, Penn State, Tennessee and Mississippi State, which was his most recent stop. The Nittany Lions defense was coordinated by him in 2016 en route to a Big Ten title and a trip to the Rose Bowl against USC. That unit was the Big Ten’s top scoring defense and finished the season second in the country via the S&P+ metric. His 2018 defense at Mississippi State was the No. 1 S&P+ unit in the country.

Shoop’s role is currently unclear, but comes with the Wolverines needing to replace two staff members on defense in the departed Chris Partridge and Anthony Campanile. His titles at other stops have had him coaching the defensive backs, so one would assume he moves into that role.

This story is developing.
