According to reports, two of the Wolverines’ most respected backroom employees are planning to head to the NFL.

It looks like two more Michigan employees will be joining former Michigan football head coach Jim Harbaugh in Los Angeles after making the move to the NFL.

A report from 247Sports states that Doug Mallory, a defensive analyst for the Wolverines, would replace Denard Wilson as the defensive backs coach of the Baltimore Ravens. Wilson’s resignation from the position occurred recently.

Mallory played for the Atlanta Falcons for six years from 2015 to 20 after being a member of the team under Bo Schembechler from 1984 to 1987. In addition, he worked as the Indiana Hoosiers’ co-defensive coordinator and associate head coach from 2011 to 2013. He had previously worked for Army, LSU, Oklahoma State, Maryland, Western Kentucky, New Mexico, and Oklahoma State.

Mallory spent the last three seasons in Ann Arbor assisting defensive coordinator Jesse Minter with weekly opponent preparation.

Dylan Roney, a graduate assistant from Michigan who is most renowned for helping defensive line coach Mike Elston the last two seasons, is also anticipated to leave. Rumor has it that Roney will be joining Jim Harbaugh’s Los Angeles Chargers.

For the Wolverines, Roney was an unsung hero who often won coach Elston’s appreciation for his efforts with Michigan’s edge rushers. Although Minter is one of Roney’s strongest supporters, it should come as no surprise that the Chargers would want him to have a role on his staff. His exact position on the team is TBD.

Sherrone Moore has his job cut out for him when it comes to hiring the remaining personnel. This comes one week after he announced the hiring of Justin Tress as strength and conditioning coach, Kirk Campbell as offensive coordinator, Grant Newsome as offensive line coach, Steve Casula as tight ends coach, J.B. Brown as special teams coordinator, and Tress as offensive coordinator. However, much work remains, so stick with Maize n Brew while the coaching staff continues to develop.
