Looks like Martin has some balls. I expect Jackson gone next season as a head coach somewhere else.

Nice, that should lock in McGuffie. Source?

ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- Fred Jackson was brought back as Michigan's running backs coach on Friday, a day after new coach Rich Rodriguez fired all the assistants on Lloyd Carr's staff.

"Rich spoke with everyone individually last night and did not want to hold them up in exploring other options," said school spokesman David Ablauf. "He has rehired Fred Jackson as an offensive coach."

Rodriguez met with the coaches one by one at Schembechler Hall on Thursday, as the retiring Carr packed up his belongings in boxes, clearing space for his successor.

Carr will coach the Wolverines on Jan. 1 against Florida in the Capital One Bowl, ending his 13th season as their head coach, then Rodriguez will take over.

But the former West Virginia coach already put his mark on the program by firing each of Carr's assistants, all of whom were given two-year deals in March that will pay them through Feb. 28, 2009. Their firings are effective after the bowl game.

Jackson had been fired along with Ron English, defensive coordinator; Mike DeBord, offensive coordinator; Erik Campbell, wide receivers and assistant head coach; Vance Bedford, defensive backs; Scot Loeffler, quarterbacks; Andy Moeller, offensive line; Steve Stripling, defensive line; and Steve Szabo, linebackers.

While helping Michigan prepare to play the Gators, the assistant coaches are free to pursue other jobs. If they don't land a job, they still will be paid by the school.

Some of Rodriguez's coaches from West Virginia are expected to join him in Ann Arbor. He introduced offensive coordinator Calvin Magee and secondary coach and recruiting coordinator Tony Gibson at his Michigan news conference on Monday.

Glad to see him back. He is the one guy I really wanted them to keep.

I just wanted to post the above excerpt because I enjoy seeing "Mike DeBord fired". I'll never understand Carr's fixation with this guy, beyond just being his buddy.

Ron English, defensive coordinator

That is the one I don't understand!! I like English for some reason, he is young and has alot of passion...The DB's are usually really good at Michigan so if you appoint a new DC than at least let him coach the DB's?!?! I don't think he did a bad job the past 2 years, Michigan's had their bad defensive moments but everytime goes through that. You erase the OSU and USC game last year and Appl. St. and Oregon game this year (They were young the first 2 games against very good Spread Offenses and they had to replace 7 defensive starters from the year before) and the defense looked pretty good otherwise. 4 games out of 24 isn't bad and every team has those break down games!!! They need to teach better technique on tackling at all of the positions and maybe hire somebody to do that??? I just like English passion, I think he is a good coach that just needs time to blossom. He was only a DC for 2 years...

RICHIES 2ND GOOD MOVE, FIRST ONE WAS GETTING debore out of their sammy will not back out of his commitment now,

Jackson has been a strong recruiter at Michigan, and there had been considerable speculation incoming freshman standout tailback Sam McGuffie would only sign with the Wolverines if Jackson remained on staff.

Sources indicated Thursday that defensive line coach Steve Stripling also could be rehired. Jackson said he was told two other assistants potentially could be rehired. 10448/1131/SPORTS0201

I would guess the third is QB coach Scott Loeffler.

Pryor and Loeffler are pretty tight, as is Pryor and Rich Rod. Add those 2 together and you probably have Pryor on the team in Feb. While RR runs a completely different style of offense it's obvious that Loeffler and Jackson are 2 of the nations best recruiters for those positions. I'm sure Rich Rod knows that and would def trust in their abilities to recruit those positions in the future.
