ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- University of Michigan head football coach Brady Hoke and the Wolverines coaching staff will host the annual Michigan Football Coaches Clinic Thursday through Saturday, March 21-23.
"The coaches clinic is one of my favorite weekends of the year," said Hoke. "To be around other coaches whose passion it is to help develop our younger kids on and off the field is a lot of fun. This year, we have a great lineup of coaches that will be speaking, including our entire staff that will once again be available in chalk talk sessions and on-the-field demonstrations."
In addition to members of the Michigan coaching staff, featured speakers include several of the top high school head football coaches across the country and two NFL coaches. Jacksonville Jaguars special teams coordinator Mike Mallory will speak on Thursday at 7:30 p.m., while Dean Pees, defensive coordinator of the Super Bowl champions Baltimore Ravens, will discuss red zone defense on Friday at 7:30 p.m.
Meetings for film sessions and guest speakers are tentatively scheduled to be held in the newly renovated Crisler Center. The clinic also includes three days of Wolverines spring practices starting on Thursday, March 21. Practices will be held in either Glick Field House or Michigan Stadium -- depending on weather conditions.
In addition to featured speakers, there will be a strength and conditioning overview by Aaron Wellman and breakout sessions with members of the video, athletic training and recruiting staffs. Also on Friday, members of the Michigan coaching staff will run on-field drill demonstrations following the conclusion of practice.
The clinic costs $60 per coach if registered before March 20, and $70 at the door. Registration and payments may be made online at MichiganCoachesClinic.com. A complete schedule with speakers is available on the site.
