Welcome to the U, Josh Gattis!
February 6, 2022

Josh Gattis will be the Canes’ new offensive coordinator and wide receivers coach in 2022.

Miami head coach
Mario Cristobal was very deliberate in the selection of his coordinators. On Sunday, he got his man to run the offense. Teamed with new defensive coordinator Kevin Steele, Gattis gives Mario Cristobal a strong set of top coordinators on his staff.

Josh Gattis, 38, was Michigan’s offensive coordinator in 2021. He led the Wolverines' offense to a Big Ten Conference Championship and an appearance in the College Football Playoff. In the process, he won the Broyles Award as the nation’s top assistant. He’s highly respected as one of the top offensive coordinators and play callers in college football this season.

Michigan’s offensive under Gattis finished #16 in scoring offense this season (35.7 points per game).

He brings 12 years of college coaching experience, the last three years as offensive coordinator for the Wolerines. He has also coached at North Carolina, Vanderbilt, Penn State and Alabama. Under Nick Saban, Gattis served a year as co-offensive coordinator. Both Gattis and Cristobal made stops at Alabama under the legend.

Gattis blends many styles of offense to fit his personnel, from pro-style to pure spread with RPO. Look for multiple looks out of the spread that can play the power run game, while hitting explosive plays downfield when the opposing defense hedges the box.

Coach Cristobal must now focus on the remaining unfilled coaching positions. That should come quickly.

Welcome to the U, coach Josh Gattis!

GO Canes!
