FEBRUARY 2019 THE WOLVERINE 11   INSIDE MICHIGAN ATHLETICS THEY SAID IT "It is an honor and a privilege to join the University of Michigan football family under Coach [Jim] Harbaugh, one of the most successful head coaches in all of football. I am deeply humbled by the opportunity to serve as your offensive coordinator. This is the leadership challenge I've coveted. The football tradition at the University of Michigan is among the very best in college athletics. My family and I couldn't be more excited to arrive in Ann Arbor." — New Michigan offensive coordinator Josh Gattis' statement after he was hired Jan. 10 "The impact Josh Gattis had at Vandy, Penn State and on that young WR group at Alabama this past year was very impressive. Landing him is probably the best addition for Michigan since Harbaugh got [defensive coordinator] Don Brown." — FOX college football analyst Bruce Feldman on Twitter, who was the first to report Michigan's hiring of Gattis "[Michigan junior point guard] Zavier Simpson, in my opinion, is the MVP of the league to this point. You take him away from that team and they're not No. 2 in the country." — Illinois head coach Brad Underwood after U-M's 79-69 victory over the Illini Jan. 10, in which Simpson scored 16 points and dished out eight assists "Being 10-3 is good at a lot of places, but not for me and not for here. We have a lot of weapons back next year, and we have a lot of work to put in this offseason — we're feeling [crappy] right now, but this will fuel everyone for next season. We can take this loss two ways — let it linger and suck the life out of us, or learn and grow from it. We plan to do the second one." — Junior left guard and team captain Ben Bredeson after the Peach Bowl loss to Florida Dec. 29 — Austin Fox Michigan head coach John Beilein on his Jan. 14 Inside Michigan Basketball radio show, one night after the team set the school record for the best-ever start to a season at 17-0 "It's something nobody will ever be able to take away from the guys on this team. We're not measuring our success with that record though." PHOTO BY BRANDON BROWN (Item #1365) CUSTOM GRILL COVER Hand-made in the USA using the finest commercial grade vinyl.
