After leading the Wolverines towards its first national championship title since 1997, Jim Harbaugh passed the baton to Michigan's former offensive line coach Sherrone Moore to become the new head coach at the university.

Even though Sherrone Moore was appointed as the interim head coach for a few games in the 2023 season when Jim Harbaugh was facing suspension, Moore still has limited head coaching experience, which is why he'll be under the spotlight in 2024.

During his recent conversation with a popular college football analyst on "The Joel Klatt Show," the Michigan head coach talked about the best part of his job,

"Walking in every single day and in this beautiful facility with all these great kids and people on just you know understanding and knowing that everybody looks to us as the head coach of this great university, great tradition and just a players, the players being around players every day is the best part. So I love that," Moore said. (0:53)

Sherrone Moore on the moment he found out about his head coaching gig

Moore used to play college football at Oklahoma as an offensive guard, where he played 14 games. He joined Michigan in 2018 as a tight ends coach before moving onto the role of offensive line coach.

During the same conversation, he talked about the moment when he realized his new job, replacing Jim Harbaugh.

"I was in the Dallas or Houston airport, I just talked to Coach probably like, three hours before that. And he's kind of like, yeah, you know, I don't know what's gonna happen and think it could happen soon. And I was like, Okay, it's gonna happen at some point. I just gotta be ready," Moore said.
"It popped up on my phone Jim Harbaugh to the charges, and that second phone doo doo doo text messages, calls our AD or assistant AD calls, hey, you got to come back right now. So I did an interview the next day and got the job on Saturday. Press Conference was on the road to recruiting on Monday and, it was just humbling," he added. (2:00)

No doubt, it will be quite interesting to see how Sherrone Moore leads the squad in absence of some peculiar names like Jim Harbaugh, Blake Corum and J.J. McCarthy.
