Wednesday--April 20th, 2016

Coach Michaels is the latest "Made in Massachusetts" video.

Coach Michaels is the special teams coordinator and OLB coach.

This year he'll be working with:

Da'Sean Downey 6-4 241 JR 9-3 GP-GS 21 UT 22 AT 43 TT 4.5-13 TFL 1-5 INT
Leon Flanagan 6-3 200 FR FR (Early enrollee)
D'Shan Harley 6-3 218 RSFR
Aaron Kinsey 6-4 205 RSFR
Teddy Lowery 6-0 225 JR JUCO Transfer
Peter Ngobidi 6-2 218 SR 8-0 GP-GS 7 UT 10 AT 17 TT 2.5-10 TFL 1.0-4 SACK

In addition, Michaels will have the following:

James Bowe, Jr 6-2 200 FR (early enrollee, OLB as recruited, listed as ILB on roster)
Taylor Riggins 6-2 213 FR three-star recruit (listed as RB/OLB in recruiting)

The OLB postion should have more talent and depth this year. Downey and Ngobidi will probably be listed as the "1's". Lowery and Flanagan should be in the rotation.


James Ihedigbo is an inspiring guy to be around. Wonder if he'd be interested in coaching after his NFL career.


In some bulletin-board material, the Orlando Sentinel has UMass #128 (dead last) in it's 2016 preview. I don't know where they're getting that.


During 2016 opponent Tulane's Spring Game, defense ruled the field.

The local paper has six takeaways from the Green Wave's Spring game.
