ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) Michigan has fired offensive coordinator Al Borges after the Wolverines went 7-6 during the 2013 season.
Michigan finished 86th in the country in total offense. Although quarterback Devin Gardner had his moments, the Wolverines averaged only 3.3 yards per rush and were unable to move the ball consistently as they slipped out of the Big Ten title race.
Borges was one of several assistants who came with coach Brady Hoke from his previous staff at San Diego State. Hoke took over at Michigan after the 2010 season and led the Wolverines to the Sugar Bowl in his first year. But they dropped to 8-5 in the 2012 season and looked overmatched on the offensive line in 2013.
