In his new role, Poggi will help develop the young assistants, he told the paper, and will work with the offensive linemen. Sherrone Moore is in his first season coaching the offensive line after working with the tight ends.  

Poggi served as a special advisor and associate head coach to Harbaugh in 2016. It was his son, Henry Poggi’s, junior season at Michigan where he played fullback.
