    Went to HS (Clearwater) with Frey, high quality guy. Did some good recruiting at UM and at Indiana. Does well in Clearwater/Tampa area.
    RichRod took him from USF to WV, then to UM. Was let go when RichRod got the boot there.
    He will absolutely help this O-Line.
    Thought he did some of his best work at Indiana.

    Thanks for reminding me, I had almost forgotten about the CMHC. Can't seem to recall his name or face just now. It's like he was some sort of non-entity or something - or at the very least, totally and permanently irrelevant. May he go in peace, just please, don't ever come back.

    Great, so we are getting a guy who can't train his players properly!

    As an Analyst hire, he's not going to be involved in training the players in the first place....

    he's an off-field hire..... Hevesy is the actual guy, remember?

    I'm surprised Saban didn't nab him first. Alabama is down to only 163 ex-coaches on their support staff. Don't know how Nick can possibly win without more help.

    Sounds like a good get for an analyst. So, was he just the sacrificial lamb for last year's poor O-Line performance at FSU then?

    We owe McElwain another $1.5M. I think we also still owe CSU another $0.5M in 2020, and McElwain also owes them $0.33M then too for for the original buyout there. At least Muschamp is paid off now.

    Briles wanted his own o-line coach to come with him to FSU so Frey was out.

    Everything we've seen here, and MSU fans have seen is that DM is extremely competent. He's good with the media/fans, he's a good internal program builder, a great X&O's guy, and he's (at least) a competent recruiter. Rival fans will always find something to pick on, as we do to them, but I really wonder where the Dopey Dan trope came from. I don't know if he'll ever win a natty, but Dopey is the last thing I would think.

    I believe he was. Weren't his guys, tough place to recruit when the program is in crapper. Only there a year.

    Before moving to Ann Arbor, Frey spent six years coaching the offensive line at Indiana. While there he also served as the assistant head coach in 2016, co-offensive coordinator in 2014 and 2015 and the run game coordinator for the 2012 and 2013 seasons. His efforts in 2015 resulted in him being a nominee for the Broyles Award, which is presented annually to college football’s top assistant coach.

    While in Bloomington, he tutored some of the best offensive lines in school history. Right guard Dan Feeney was a two-time All-American, earning first-team honors in 2015 and second-team acclaim in 2016 despite missing nearly half the season due to injury, and left tackle Jason Spriggs earned first-team All-America status while becoming the program’s first Outland Trophy semifinalist in 2015. That year, the duo became only the sixth pair of teammates, and first in IU history, to be first-team All-Americans in the same season. Spriggs was selected in the second round of the 2016 NFL Draft by the Green Bay Packers, and Feeney was a third-round pick by the Los Angeles Chargers in 2017.

    The 2015 offensive line blocked for one of the most prolific and balanced offenses in NCAA history as Indiana became only the fourth FBS team with a 3,500-yard passer, two 1,000-yard rushers and one 1,000-yard receiver in the same season. The Hoosiers also were the first Big Ten team since Ohio State in 1995 to lead the conference in total offense, scoring offense and passing offense.

    Frey spent the 2008-2010 seasons as the offensive line coach at Michigan and helped build an offensive line that blocked for a school-record and Big Ten-high 6,353 yards of total offense in 2010 led by quarterback Denard Robinson’s Big Ten-record 4,272 yards of total offense. The Wolverines boasted a balanced attack that season, averaging 250.2 passing yards per game and 238.5 rushing yards per game.

    During his first Michigan stretch, Frey coached All-Big Ten performers Taylor Lewan, David Molk, Patrick Omameh, Stephen Schilling and Michael Schofield. Lewan was a two-time Big Ten Offensive Lineman of the Year and was picked 11th overall in the 2014 NFL Draft by the Tennessee Titans. Molk won the Rimington Trophy before being drafted by the San Diego Chargers.
