Report: Jim Harbaugh interviewed former LSU OC Cam Cameron for opening on Michigan’s staff


Given his track record over the past decade, it would be very confusing as to why someone would want to hire Cam Cameron. But it seems that Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh is at least interested, according to a report from Angelique Chengelis of the Detroit News.

Cameron last worked as the offensive coordinator at LSU during the 2016 season. He was fired along with Les Miles after the team got off to a 2-2 start. Before getting fired from LSU, he was the offensive coordinator for the Baltimore Ravens. He was also fired from that role during the 2012 season. After Cameron’s removal, the Ravens went on to win the Super Bowl that very same year.

And before the Ravens job, he was the head coach of the Miami Dolphins, taking over the job Nick Saban had left. In his one-year as coach of the Dolphins, the team went 1-15. Cameron also served as the quarterbacks and wide receivers and quarterbacks coach at Michigan from 1986-93.

Cameron isn’t the the only former SEC coach with ties to an opening at Michigan. Former Florida coach Jim McElwain has been connected to the job. McElwain was fired at Florida this past season, after leading Florida to back-to-back SEC East titles. The 10th assistant position was originally filled by former Arkansas offensive coordinator Dan Enos, but he left the job to become the quarterbacks coach at Alabama.

Whoever Michigan ends up hiring, they will need to upgrade Michigan’s anemic passing offense. The Wolverines could get a boost for the coming season if former Ole Miss quarterback Shea Patterson is granted eligibility for the coming season.
