Tennessee lost its running backs coach, Jerry Mack, to the professional ranks earlier this week. Mack accepted the same role with the Jacksonville Jaguars, a big loss for the Vols’ coaching staff after he did excellent work with his group. Now, Michigan is targeting linebackers coach Brian Jean-Mary for the same role, and there could be interest.

Football Scoop reported that the Wolverines had engaged Jean-Mary in discussions about a potential reunion in Ann Arbor. Nothing is final or official, but Tennessee could be in danger of losing another one of its top assistants.
