Michigan head coach Jim Harbaugh has been working hard to get the recruits and coaches he wants on his team since he has been in Ann Arbor, and there is still work to be done.
It is now being reported that Kentucky tight ends coach Vince Marrow will be staying put at Kentucky.
Matt Jones, founder of Kentucky Sports Radio, had this to report on Sunday night.

There was a lot of speculation that Marrow would join Michigan’s staff sometime this week. Marrow even took to Twitter and followed many of the Michigan recruits and staff, including 2015 four-star tight end prospect Chris Clark.
Clark even said that he believed Marrow would eventually join Harbaugh’s staff.
“It’s not officially done, but it sounded like he was going there,” said Clark after he spoke with Marrow. “We sort of talked about how he could really help me in terms of coaching, help me get ready for the next level.”
Clark also mentioned how Marrow has looked at his game tape and how he “expressed excitement about possibly working with him one day.”
This really made it seem like Marrow would be joining Michigan because Clark, the top tight end in the class, narrowed down his college choices to Michigan and UCLA.
Why would Marrow reach out to Clark if he knew Clark wouldn’t be going to Kentucky and if Marrow knew there was a chance that he would stay at Kentucky?
Marrow would have been a huge addition to the Michigan football staff. He is from Ohio and has a large recruiting presence in the state.
Maybe he will change his mind again and commit to the Wolverines. If not, this is a big lost opportunity for the program.
