King Academy’s Michael Johnson will become wide receivers coach at Oregon rather than an analyst under Jim Harbaugh at Michigan, according to a report.


The fuss over Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh hiring Michael Johnson, the father of a highly touted 2019 recruit, apparently will be for naught.

According to a report Friday morning, Johnson will become wide receivers coach at Oregon and not accept an analyst position on Harbaugh’s staff at Michigan. The news first was released by Sam Webb of TheMichiganInsider.com.

Johnson was a high school coach at King’s Academy in California, but he also has experience coaching wide receivers and quarterbacks in the NFL. The school tweeted Monday that Johnson had resigned to take a position at Michigan, which caused some waves around the country.

Johnson is the father of 4-star dual-threat quarterback Michael Johnson Jr., who is the top-ranked player at his position in the 2019 class. Many blasted the hire as Harbaugh trying to pull a recruiting coup by hiring the elder Johnson, including ESPN’s Paul Finebaum, who accused Harbaugh of cheating on the network’s Outside the Lines show.

Harbaugh took to Twitter on Thursday night in response to Finebaum’s comments, spelling his name wrong and creating yet another storm over the controversial hire.

The timing of Johnson’s reversal seems more than coincidental, although it still makes sense on the surface. Michigan does not have a coaching position open as it awaits the NCAA proposition to add a 10th assistant coach, and it appears that won’t go into effect until January 2018.

Oregon has an open spot on coach Willie Taggart’s staff after Jimmie Dougherty, a former analyst at Michigan, left the Ducks for UCLA roughly two weeks ago.
