Michigan says Partridge will coach LBs, special teams

ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) Chris Partridge will remain with Michigan's coaching staff as a linebackers and special teams coach.

The Wolverines announced that Thursday. Partridge, who had been the director of player personnel in recruiting since January 2015, was appointed to coach linebackers during the bowl season after defensive coordinator D.J. Durkin left to become the head coach at Maryland.

Partridge was a head coach for five seasons at Paramus Catholic High School in New Jersey. Previously, he was an assistant at The Citadel.
