Michigan Hires From Within
As a grad assistant this past season (his second with Michigan), Boccher was given the job of Special Teams Coach for the Wolverines. He had just recently been hired by Brady Hoke as an assistant coach at Ball State (where Hoke recently because Head Coach). Now, just like that, he is 'back in the big-time' as a full-time Michigan Assistant. Here is Ouimet's reaction: "This is a big move for Jim. Coach Carr obviously liked his work with special teams this year, and has decided to keep his current staff together instead of going outside and making a new hire." "My guess is that Boccher will stay as special teams coach, grad assistant Steve Morrison will coach outside linebackers, Jim Herrman inside backers, with Bill Sheridan sliding down to coach the defensive line as well as keeping the recruiting coordinator job." "As far as recruiting assignments ... Brady Hoke had the West Coast you know, and Scott Loeffler had taken (former assistant) Stan Parrish's Northern Ohio and Northeast U.S. regions. I think you might see Loeffler keep Northern Ohio but also take the West, with Boccher picking up the Northeast. Jim is from New Jersey and went to Rutgers, where he was a student football assistant and also a grad assistant."
