After one year in Tuscaloosa as co-offensive coordinator, it was reported that he was set to follow his colleague Mike Locksley to Maryland, where he would serve as offensive coordinator.
Then, apparently, Jim Harbaugh swooped in.
It is unclear where Gattis will fit in, in relation to Hamilton, who is also assistant head coach, under Harbaugh.
It bears mention that Locksley, not Gattis, held that role at Alabama.
Harrington set for European 2020 Ryder Cup captaincy
While latterly he has brought his extensive experience to the role of vice-captain in the past three editions of the biennial contest.
Gattis joined Alabama this season after spending the past six seasons working as a receivers coach under James Franklin at Vanderbilt (2012-13) and Penn State (2014-17). He's had success in this capacity at every stop.
Alabama featured the nation's 6th-best passing offense in 2018, with quarterbacks Tua Tagovailoa, Jalen Hurts and Mac Jones combining for 4,854 yards, 52 passing touchdowns and just 8 interceptions in 15 games.
Michigan's offense didn't have an official coordinator in 2018.
Crimson Tide wide receivers shined in Gattis' lone season with the program. That offense was hit-or-miss this season at times, and struggled against big-time competition.
Kevin Hart definitively states: 'No, I'm not hosting the Oscars this year'
Speaking to Michael Strahan on Good Morning America , the Night School actor said: "It's hard to predict what can happen". It's still not clear if Kevin Hart will host this year's Oscar ceremony.
The Michigan offense bookended the season with poor performances, however.
"It is an honor and a privilege to join the University of MI football family under Coach Harbaugh, one of the most successful head coaches in all of football", Gattis said in Michigan's release. MI scored just 17 points in a Week 1 loss to Notre Dame and 15 points in a Peach Bowl loss to Florida. In addition to the hire of Gattis, defensive line coach Greg Mattison and defensive assistant Al Washington both departed for Ohio State earlier this week.
