Jim Harbaugh has hired his son Jay to be Michigan’s tight ends coach and assistant special teams coordinator. At 25, Jay Harbaugh will be the youngest full-time assistant in the Big Ten. Mlive.com’s Nick Baumgardner thinks that youth could be a positive thing for the Wolverines:
Michigan's coaching staff under Harbaugh is light years younger than the one Hoke had … In college football, that's not really a bad thing

Michigan fans hope the contrast in age will lead to a contrast in results on the field from the last coaching staff as well.
