Michigan Offensive Assistant Lands FCS Head Coaching Job

Make that two Michigan assistants who now will be head coaches elsewhere.

When things are going well, as they (mostly) are in Ann Arbor, there will always be coaching attrition, as other college and pro programs will be eager to poach talent. Such was the case earlier this week, when Central Michigan hired former Wolverines receivers coach Jim McElwain to their open head coaching vacancy. And now, a lesser known name in Schembechler Hall is headed out of town, ready to take over his own program.

Michigan offensive analyst Ron Prince had spent the last several years in Detroit coaching the Lions offensive line under then-head coach Jim Caldwell. Once Caldwell was let go, Prince remained in the area and took a behind-the-scenes, off-the-field position in Ann Arbor. And now, the former Kansas State head coach is headed to Washington D.C. to the Howard University head coaching job according to Football Scoop.

Source tells FootballScoop Howard University (FCS – DC) plans to hire University of Michigan offensive analyst Ron Prince as head coach.

Prince, who served as Kansas State’s head coach between Bill Snyder’s runs, joined Jim Harbaugh’s staff before this season. He had been with the Detroit Lions since 2014 serving as assistant head coach and working with the tight ends and offensive line.

Howard’s head coaching position came open when Mike London accepted the head job at William & Mary.

Michigan has been working with a wealth of off-field coaches, with personnel like Prince, Devin Bush Sr. and now-interim WR coach Ben McDaniels working in analyst positions.

Also, perhaps ironically, Howard University is the school where Michigan pass game coordinator Pep Hamilton played quarterback and started his coaching career with quarterbacks and then as offensive coordinator.
