Jim Harbaugh and Michigan Football will eventually have a dedicated quarterback coach.
A source confirmed to the Free Press Sunday that Baltimore Ravens' assistant Matt Weiss will serve in the role. The source asked for anonymity as they weren't allowed to speak publicly about the deal.
Weiss will fill the void created by former linebacker trainer Brian Jean-Mary, who traveled to Tennessee a few days ago. Weiss spent 12 seasons on the Ravens staff, where Harbaugh's brother John is the head coach.

He has been responsible for the team's running backs since 2019. In the past, however, he has worked with quarterbacks and wide receivers in a support role on site.
Weiss came to Baltimore from Stanford, where he worked as an assistant under Jim Harbaugh from 2005 to 2008.

Weiss is the sixth assistant coach Michigan has hired this off-season. Harbaugh removed Defense Coordinator Mike Macdonald from his brother's staff in January. He also brought in Maurice Linguist as co-coordinator and cornerbacks coach, while adding George Helow as safety coach, Mike Hart as running backs coach, and Ron Bellamy as receiver coach. Helow has now been transferred to the linebacker and Bellamy will now train the security measures.
In the revised organization, some roles were also shifted and Harbaugh initially commissioned himself to train the quarterbacks. But that has now changed when Weiss was about to join the group.
Ian Rapoport from the NFL Network first reported on the move.
