Sherrone Moore and the Michigan Wolverines have made it official, Steve Casula will be the program’s tight ends coach in 2024.

On Saturday, the program made the hire official in a press release, complete with statements from Moore and Casula themselves, who can’t wait to begin working with one another.

“Steve is a smart, versatile and highly capable coach who works hard to put the players in the best position to succeed,” said Moore. “He will be an asset to us in recruiting and a great addition to the offensive staff room. We look forward to having Steve mentor our tight ends and be heavily involved in other aspects of our program.

“Steve and his family are a great addition to our staff and we welcome them back to the Michigan Football family.”

Moreover, Casula had been the offensive coordinator for the UMass Minutemen since 2022. While with UMass, he worked under former Michigan defensive coordinator Don Brown, who is currently the head coach at UMass.

Casula also had an earlier stint with the Wolverines from 2019-2021. He spent time at a variety of other stops including Ferris State, Davenport, Colgate, Western Michigan, Delaware, and a number of high schools (Kennett High School) (Pennsylvania) and Delcastle Tech High School (Delaware).

When he worked with Michigan from 2019-2021, he worked directly for Josh Gattis and the Wolverines’ offense. He served in a variety of roles until he was elevated to senior analyst following the 2020 season. While on staff with the Wolverines, he helped guide them to a 12-2 record and the team’s first appearance in the College Football Playoff.

While at Ferris State, Casula worked as their offensive coordinator, also serving as their tight ends coach and running backs coach in 2018.

“Thanks to Coach Moore for the opportunity to come back to Ann Arbor and be part of this incredible staff and team,” added Casula. “My family and I spent three great years in Ann Arbor, and we could not be more excited to return and be part of the continued success of Michigan Football.

“The way tight ends are utilized in this program, this will be an exceptional group to lead as we continue recruiting and developing the very best at that position.”

As you can see, the hire of Steve Casula is one that should excite Michigan fans, as the Wolverines move forward with a brand-new look for 2024 under Sherrone Moore’s leadership.
