Michigan football assistant Al Borges is one to watch, according to this list
It must be the off-season. Al Borges hasn't worked one game as the Michigan football team's offensive coordinator, and he's already considered a hot head coaching prospect. At least by one person.
Tom Dienhart, a senior college football writer for Rivals.com, put together a 20-person list of assistant coaches who could be head coaches in the near future. Gus Malzahn, the offensive coordinator at Auburn, tops the list. Wisconsin offensive coordinator Paul Chryst is No. 3.
Borges, who followed Brady Hoke from San Diego State to join the Michigan staff, checks in at No. 20.
Borges takes over a Michigan offense that last season was centered around quarterback and Big Ten Offensive Player of the Year Denard Robinson. Borges said in March he'll modify his offensive style to take advantage of Robinson's skills.
"If we've done anything well, we've just identified the skill level of the person taking the snaps and then adjusted our offense - without bastardizing our offense - based on that kid's skill level," Borges said in March.
