Jim McElwain ‘has emerged as a strong candidate’ to become Michigan WRs coach, per report

Jim McElwain may be coaching again in the Big Ten soon, and this time, it would be for the Michigan Wolverines — not the Michigan State Spartans.

Back from 2003-05, McElwain was the assistant head coach with the Spartans and he also coached the wide receivers and special teams during his time there.

Per a report through Sports Illustrated on Saturday, McElwain has a chance of becoming a wide receivers coach for the Wolverines in 2018.

According to Sports Illustrated’s Bruce Feldman, a source told SI that McElwain “has emerged as a strong candidate” to work with the team’s receivers. It has also been reported that McElwain has interviewed for the position recently.

In McElwain’s most recent stop in the world of college football, he coached the Florida Gators from 2015-17. He accumulated a 22-12 overall record while winning two SEC titles before being fired in the middle of his third season.
