A two-time nominee for the Frank Boyles Assistant Coach of the Year award, Al Borges is in his third year as Michigan's offensive coordinator/quarterbacks and 26th year serving in that capacity at the NCAA level.

Since taking charge of the offense, Borges has had five offensive players earn All-Big Ten honors, including All-Americans and back-to-back Rimington-Pace Big Ten Offensive Lineman of the Year award winners in center David Molk (2011) and left tackle Taylor Lewan (2012).

Borges coordinated a Wolverines offense in 2012 that averaged 383.1 yards and 29.8 points per game and earned a bid to the Outback Bowl. Under Borges, quarterback Denard Robinson set the school career marks in total yards (10,745) and touchdowns (91) and the NCAA record for rushing yards by a quarterback (4,495). The Wolverines set the school record with a 50.3 percent conversion rate on third down and ranked No. 6 nationally, while U-M continued to be efficient in the red zone, scoring on 93.5 percent of its opportunities, tied for third-best in the FBS.

In 2011, Borges' offense averaged 404.7 yards and 33.3 points per game for a Wolverines team that finished 11-2 and won the Allstate Sugar Bowl. With the ground game a focus of the offense, Robinson and running back Fitzgerald Toussaint became U-M's first pair of 1,000-yard rushers since 1975 (Gordon Bell and Rob Lytle). The Wolverines offense ranked No. 2 in the Big Ten in scoring and rushing yards per game (221.8) and No. 3 in total yards per game, third-down conversion percentage (47.0) and sacks allowed (18).

Prior to joining the Wolverines, Borges was a member of Brady Hoke's staff at San Diego State in 2009 and '10. In four years as Auburn's offensive coordinator (2004-07), Borges was part of four bowl teams with a collective 42-9 record. He helped guide the Tigers to four consecutive top 15 finishes in the final Associated Press poll, including an undefeated season and a No. 2 ranking in 2004.

During his tenure, Auburn defeated 12 nationally-ranked opponents, including nine teams ranked in the top nine. Four of his offensive players earned All-America honors and eight garnered first-team All-Southeast Conference accolades. Prior to that, Borges served as offensive coordinator at three Pac-10 schools: California, UCLA and Oregon.

Among his standout student-athletes were UCLA All-American, Davey O'Brien Award winner and Heisman Trophy finalist quarterback Cade McNown, UCLA Outland Trophy winner Kris Farris, SEC Offensive Player of the Year quarterback Jason Campbell (Auburn) and All-American running back Carnell Williams (Auburn).

Borges and his wife, Nikki, have two children, Cole and Mady Jo.
