Rivals.com: Michigan’s Frey, Maryland’s Brattan up for IU O-Line job

Rivals.com’s Tom Dienhart is reporting that two coaches from recently deposed staffs are up under consideration for Indiana’s offensive line coach position. Michigan offensive line coach Greg Frey — looking for work after Wolverines coach Rich Rodriguez’s firing was announced Wednesday — and Maryland offensive line coach Tom Brattan — presumably unemployed thanks to the ouster of Ralph Friedgen, are both reported to be up for the job.

The 37-year-old Frey has been with Michigan for three seasons after joining Rodriguez’s staff at West Virginia in 2007, the final season before that staff moved. From 2000-06, Frey was part of the start-up at South Florida.

The 60-year-old Brattan has been with Maryland for the past 10 years. Before that, he was at Stanford for two years and Northwestern for seven years. He did not cross paths with Indiana coach Kevin Wilson at that time. Brattan also spent eight years at William & Mary and nine seasons as a high school coach in Virginia and Delaware.

  1. I would be happy with either coach but am leaning towards Frey. His recruiting in Florida gives him the nod.

  2. A 60 year old man might be a bit too old for the rebuilding job IU needs to pursue. Based on the little information in this post, I’d go with Frey. And given that he might pull some of Michigan’s recruits with him, not a bad option.

  3. Frey is young, the Michigan o-line gave up the least amount of sacks in the Big Ten last year (1 less than IU), hopefully he is Wilson’s primary target.

  4. Just curious
    Where have the current IU Assistant Coaches ended up? HOw about G.A’s such as Dustin Hass
